The new system, called LookoutAlert, covers Jefferson County, the City and County of Broomfield and the City of Westminster.

LookoutAlert replaces the CodeRED system that each municipality used. Residents who had already signed up for CodeRED alerts were automatically moved to the new system. Anyone looking to sign up to receive alerts can do so at LookoutAlert.co.

Speakers included Sheriff Jeff Shrader with Jefferson County and Mike Brewer, Deputy Director with the Jefferson County Communications Center.

Many of the 30 public safety agencies involved in creating the new system were represented at the news conference.
