Fire Safety/ Code Red Alert System/ Reverse 911
CodeRED Alert System
CodeRED ALERTS let you know when there is danger in the area so you can prepare as needed or evacuate.
In Jefferson County, the CodeRED emergency notification system allows emergency personnel to call citizens to warn them of danger. With CodeRED, they can simultaneously call, text, or email, multiple phones within an area that they designate, to warn residents of flood, fire, tornadoes, chemical spills, or dangerous suspects. Within moments, calls reach the affected community to deliver warnings and critical safety instructions.
Without Smart911, dispatchers are only aware of a phone number, and minimal location data.
Smart911 is a free service with which users create a safety profile by entering vital data they want made available about themselves, their family, their residence and even their pets.
Data given can include photos, and information regarding medical conditions, allergies, disabilities and/or special needs, home addresses of cell phone callers and floor plans to name a few.
Smart911 delivers this information automatically to dispatchers, who then enable responders to be more successful with access to critical health and logistical information before arriving at the scene of an emergency.
Where are you? What medications do you take? What if you could provide us with life saving information before an emergency? Now you can. It's free, private and secure. Help share the message of Smart911

CLICK HERE for the Jeffco slash collection calendar and help reduce fire danger.
Removing slash and creating a defensible space around your home, is the first line of defense against wildfires. You can create zones around your home, removing any fire fuels, such as tree debris. Having a properly mitigated property doesn't mean that wildfire will pass you by, but it gives the fire department a better opportunity to save your home when it does come.
