Receive Notification

To insure that you will receive notification of emergency situations such as evacuations, dangerous suspects in the area and critical safety information, register your phone with the CodeRed Emergency Notification System. Land line telephones are automatically included in the CodeRED database. Cell phones must be registered through Jefferson County to be included in emergency notifications. 

Arvada's Emergency Management System

When a disaster occurs, the Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC) meets with City staff to prioritize and develop strategies to handle the disaster incident. The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is activated. The EOC becomes the center of communication and coordination of resources. The EMC coordinates all of the functions within the EOC. 

The next time disaster strikes, you may not have much time to act. Prepare now for a sudden emergency. Learn how to protect yourself and cope with a disaster by planning ahead. For additional information on Emergency Preparedness, link to the Federal, State, and County Emergency Preparedness sites listed on this page.

To report an emergency, call 9-1-1.
