Severe Weather Awareness Week!

As you may already know, our town is participating in Severe Weather Awareness Week, which has included testing of the outdoor sirens and which provides you and every community member with an easy way to receive notification of emergencies right away. Do you ever wish there was an easier way to quickly receive severe weather alerts and more? Fortunately, it’s easier than you think!

What Is This?

Severe Weather Awareness Week is an effort to help ensure that our state and our community are prepared to act quickly, respond, and seek shelter (if necessary) in the case of severe weather like a tornado. Included in the week is your ability to sign up for immediate alerts from the mass notification system, NotifyJoCo.
