Emergency Alerts

Citizen Alert

Arapahoe, Jefferson, and Douglas, the three counties that serve the City of Littleton, utilize a state-of-the-art emergency notification system to alert citizens about emergencies (sometimes called "Reverse 9-1-1").

The emergency notification system enables the city to provide essential information quickly in a variety of situations, such as fires, floods, evacuation of buildings or neighborhoods, and other emergencies.


How to Sign Up for Emergency Alerts

Land lines are already listed in Littleton's counties' 9-1-1 database, and are therefore automatically included in the notification system.

How Emergency Alerts Work

When the city issues a message about a potential safety hazard or concern, messages will be sent to all standard voice and text communication devices (land line, mobile, email, instant messaging, text messaging, PDA, alpha or numeric pager, etc.) that you have registered in the system. The system will continue trying to contact you on these devices until it receives a confirmation from you that the message has been received.

Please note that this system will not be used for weather alerts because the timeliness or accuracy of such alerts cannot be guaranteed. There are a variety of other media outlets (TV and radio stations, and weather-related web sites and alerts) that can provide this service in a more timely manner.
