The Arapahoe County E-911 Authority Board has launched a new
emergency-notification system to alert thousands of businesses and
residents of emergencies in a matter of minutes.
Messages can be sent by telephone, e-mail, text message and
pager. Residents and businesses with land lines have automatically
been registered to receive the messages.
Citizens are encouraged to formally opt-in to the system and
provide additional contact information at co.arapahoe.co.us . They can also
opt-out of the system.
Participating agencies include the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s
Office and the police and fire departments in Englewood, Littleton,
Greenwood Village and Sheridan.
Such agencies are now able to immediately alert citizens about
emergency police situations, fires, floods, toxic environmental
issues and other emergencies.
“We have a commitment to our citizens to protect them from any
danger that threatens our community,” Arapahoe County Sheriff
Grayson Robinson said. “The ability to reach all residents quickly
during an emergency to warn them and provide guidance is critical
to upholding that commitment.”
