Jefferson County’s NEW Emergency Notification System
Updated: Apr 29, 2022
Dear Douglass Ranch Neighbors,
Jefferson County is in the process of changing to a new Emergency Notification System.
CodeRED, the current system, will end June 30, 2022. The new system is LookoutAlert.
Current CodeRED information is to be transferred to the new LookoutAlert system. However, we have all heard of instances when users’ data was not transferred correctly in other systems. This was reported as a problem in the recent Boulder County fires. Some residents reported they did not receive evacuation notices.
Notifications may be received by phone, email, text and include Red Flag Warnings, Severe Thunderstorm, Severe Winter Weather, Safety Risk, and Health Risk. You select how and what you want to receive. There are videos explaining LookoutAlert and how to enroll.
