The Garfield County Emergency Communications Authority has implemented a state of the art emergency notification system to alert citizens of emergencies that may affect them and also provide community news when needed. The Everbridge system enables the Public Safety Agencies in Garfield County to quickly provide information in a variety of situations, such as Fires, Floods, Road Closures, Evacuations, and more.

Having your most current contact information is the only way to ensure we can contact you in the event of an emergency. Please add or update your contact information as soon as possible. It is easy and only takes a few minutes. If you still have traditional landline phone service through companies like CenturyLink, your information is already in the system. However, cell phones, VoIP services and emails are not. Add them today!

The Emergency Notification System was made possible by the Garfield County Emergency Communications Authority.

With Reverse 911 Calls why would I need this?

Unfortunately, Reverse 911 Calls only work for landline telephones (such as a home phone that is physically wired into a a phone line network). Traditional Reverse 911 Calls do not work for cell phones and VoIP phones. More and more, people are moving to VoIP phones (phones that function through an internet connection) and cell phones and removing their home phones altogether. When this occurs, people will lose out on being able to receive Emergency Notifications because subscriber information is not automatically registered and entered into an Emergency Phone Database.

How does the system work?

You decide how you want to receive Public Safety Messages. The Everbridge Reverse Notification System can deliver messages any way you want: On your VoIP phone, cell phone, email, and more. Choose to receive not only emergent messages, but you can also opt-in for Community Alerts such as Air Quality, Crime Alerts, Fire Information, Major Road Closures, etc. Signing up is simple and FREE.
