County-wide Emergency Notification Call Planned for February 6


January 28, 2013 –Jefferson and Broomfield Counties emergency services agencies, including law enforcement, fire and EMS, are working together to test their new emergency notification system.

On February 6, starting at 9 a.m., the CodeRED emergency notification system will begin making test calls.  This notification process is expected to take several hours to complete due to the large number of landlines to be called.  This system is used by these agencies to help disseminate information regarding critical incidents. This includes residents living in Jefferson and Broomfield counties, as well as portions of Adams and Clear Creek Counties. 

In addition citizens can elect to receive notification of severe weather using the CodeRED Weather Warning system.

Residents and businesses are encouraged to visit the CodeRED registration web site at to add additional contact information, including phone numbers, SMS (text) and email address preferences. This is especially important for those addresses without a landline, as residents and businesses must register if they want to receive emergency notifications. Residents who have previously registered their phone numbers must re-register under the new notification system to make certain their information is correct.

Residents wanting more information about the test notification call or with questions should contact their participating emergency service agency.
