Did you know you can receive emergency notifications for your home, work, child's school, or places you frequently visit? You can!
In Arapahoe County, ArapAlert utilizes the CodeRED system to allow Public Safety Agencies to warn citizens/residents/visitors of danger and other important information. With ArapAlert, the agencies can call, text, or email multiple individuals and businesses to warn of dangerous suspects, flood, fire, or chemical spills. Due to the variety of weather related alert services available, ArapAlert is not generally utilized for weather related notifications. For more information about how the system works, how to sign up, how to register multiple locations such as your home, work, child's school, or places you visit frequently, and the ArapAlert app, please click HERE!
In Adams County, the CodeRED Emergency Notification System is administered through the Adams County Communications Center (ADCOM911). The system is setup to contact home landline phone numbers within the geographical jurisdictions of the City of Bennett, the City of Brighton, Commerce City, the City of Northglenn, Unincorporated Adams County, and the Adams County portion of Strasburg. This system can also send alerts to cell phones if residents personally register their cell phones into the system. The same cell phone number can be registered for different addresses (i.e. work, school, and home). The CodeRED System will only be activated in an emergency situation where there is a risk of significant harm, an urgent threat, or when a general notification is needed, including severe weather alerts.

**It is important to note that while these systems can provide notifications for various circumstances, they are not intended to be the sole source of emergency notifications. Use of these systems does not guarantee that every person will receive an emergency notification in every situation since phone lines may be down, cell phones may be turned off, etc. These systems should be considered as supplemental notification systems to provide you with information, when available. While these can be a great supplemental tool, we also encourage all residents to take ownership of their own preparedness through developing family disaster plans, building 72-hour Emergency Kits, listening to NOAA weather radios, and being aware of their surroundings and weather conditions.
