LookoutAlert Regional Emergency Notification System

LookoutAlert is the official emergency notification system of the regional collaborative of Jefferson County and all cities within it, the City and County of Broomfield and the City of Westminster. Through LookoutAlert, emergency responders are able to provide emergency and public safety messages to residents.

Jefferson County is moving the mass emergency notification system to the Smart911 platform because of the enhanced capabilities of this system. You can receive free emergency alerts via text message, email, and/or voice message.
