Emergency Alerts via Cell Phone

The Daily Camera reports in the case of an emergency "Boulder County residents won't have to rely on their home phones to receive an emergency alert" ("Boulder County to offer emergency alerts via cell phone, e-mail"). There are a number of ways to sign up for this program:
  • CU Community members This is the web site for the CU Police, but you can find the two alert systems that CU students, faculty, and staff should be interested in. First, is the CU system, which sends text messages. The second is the Boulder County system.
  • Boulder City residents This is the main page for the Emergency Mass Notification System and will step you through the process of registering.
  • Boulder County residents This is the page that will answer your frequently asked questions and let you sign up for notification.
  • Longmont residents This page will walk your through signing up for emergency notification at additional numbers or via email.
