When emergencies happen, be the first to know. 


LookoutAlert is a free service that allows you to sign up online to receive customized alerts via text message, email, and voice message.
Through LookoutAlert, your emergency responders are able to send official, real-time alerts to the public with information about potentially life-saving actions they may need to take to keep themselves and their families safe.

LookoutAlert is the official emergency notification system of the City and County of Broomfield, through a regional collaborative of Jefferson County and the City of Westminster. The City and County of Broomfield is moving the mass emergency notification system to the Smart911 platform, which provides enhanced capabilities. You can receive free alerts from the City and County of Broomfield via text message, email, and/or voice message.

Due to the switch to a new service provider and notification platform, residents who are already subscribed to emergency alerts in the CodeRED system will automatically be transferred to the new system. Use of CodeRED will end on June 30, 2022. To update your delivery method and to select the type of information you'd like to receive, you will need to re-register with LookoutAlert.

Once you’ve created a profile, you can do the following:
  • Add your address to receive location-specific alerts
  • Indicate what types of alerts you want to receive including weather, emergency and more.
  • Indicate how you want to be notified by text, email, and/or voice message.
