Citizen Alert Notification Sign Up
Emergency Notification Service – Citizen Alert Notification
The safety of the community is a priority for Greenwood Village. Early warning signs help save lives and property. That is why Greenwood Village, in coordination with the Arapahoe County E 911 Authority, has launched a new Citizen Alert System. The Citizen Alert System will allow the Greenwood Village Police Department along with other public safety agencies to make sure you know about emergencies and disasters before or as they happen.
Here’s How It Works
|1. Wildfire starts, threatening Village homes and businesses.||2. The Village Dispatch Center will activate the Citizen Alert System to notify residents and businesses.||3. System starts contacting thousands of Village residents and businesses instantly by phone, fax, email, and more. The system will try the various communication devices you choose to contact you until it receives a confirmation from you that you have received the message.||4. Recipients receive instructions for safety precautions and evacuation.|
What Types of Emergencies Will Citizens Be Notified About? The alerts will include natural disaster evacuations, hazardous materials contaminations, missing persons, terrorism preparedness, criminal activity, public health, and any other events that are deemed an emergency by the Greenwood Village Police Department.
Are Land-Lined Telephones Already Included?
All land-lined telephone numbers located in the boundaries of Greenwood Village are already included in the Citizen Alert System database so citizens will automatically get alerts through their land-line telephones.
Can Citizens Add Other Communication Devices to Receive Alerts?
You can also sign up to receive emergency alerts on any other communication devices such as cellular phones, email, PDA, pager, and fax. The messages will be delivered in the form of a voice mail, text message, instant message, fax or email depending upon the settings you choose.
