Emergency Tools

The Arvada Police Department uses several tools to help communicate with residents during an emergency situation including media, social media and this web site. Two of our most important resources are Code RED (soon to be LookoutAlert) and Smart 911, which can be found under Emergency Notification Tools. You can receive free emergency alerts via text message, email, and/or voice message.

Beginning in late April, Jefferson County is moving the mass emergency notification system to the Lookout Alert/Smart911 platform because of the enhanced capabilities of this system.

Residents who are already subscribed to emergency alerts in the CodeRED system will be automatically transferred to the new system.  But in order to get the most up-to-date information and choose how and what you’d like to receive, residents will need to re-register with LookoutAlert.

Use of CodeRED will end on June 30, 2022.
