Emergency Notifications

Last summer, Jefferson County moved the mass emergency notification system to the Lookout Alert platform. To ensure you receive severe weather and other emergency notifications, all residents should register for LookoutAlert.


  • 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 can send emergency and public safety messages to residents. Register for LookoutAlert! View the Lookout Alert FAQs (PDF).
  • Smart 911 - As part of LookoutAlert, you can also sign up for Smart911, which allows you to create a safety profile for yourself and your household. Safety profiles can include vital personal and medical information for each member of the home, a photo for each person, and a list of any pets that may be in the home. This is provided directly to 911 when you call 911 in the event of an emergency, allowing dispatchers to send the right responders to the right location with the right information.
