How to sign up for your county's emergency alerts

This is how people in the Denver area can sign up to get emergency notifications from their specific county.

DENVER — Emergency notifications to cell phones, like Amber Alerts or national wireless emergency system alerts from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, should appear as push notifications as long as phones have on that setting.

 Additionally, counties in Colorado can send alerts via text or call in an emergency, like a wildfire, but residents must opt in to receive them.

This is how people on the Front Range can sign up to get emergency notifications from their specific county. Colorado also has this master list of ways to sign up for alerts in all counties.

NOTE: Aurora, Thornton and Westminster alerts are not necessarily grouped in with their respective counties. Look for information below.
