Garfield County Emergency Communications Authority Emergency Notification Program

The Garfield County Emergency Communications Authority, has implemented a state-of-the-art emergency notification system to alert citizens about emergencies and other important community news. The emergency notification system, provided by 3n Global, enables the Public Safety agencies within Garfield County to provide essential information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, fires, floods, unexpected road closures, or evacuation of buildings or neighborhoods.

How Emergency Alerts Work

The process begins when the 9-1-1 Center issues a message about a potential safety hazard or concern. Messages will be sent to all standard voice and text communication devices, including land line phones, cell phones, e-mail, and more. If you don't confirm receipt of the message, the system will try to reach your second contact number or email. The system will continue trying to contact you until it receives a confirmation from you.

To receive important communications from the Public Safety agencies within Garfield County, residents, business owners, and neighbors must register the voice and text communication devices where they wish to receive messages.
PLEASE NOTE:  Community notifications such as Road closure are sent only via Text Message, Email and Instant Messages.  Emergency Alerts will be sent to All paths that are selected.
