Community Disaster Preparedness

Being Ready as a Community
for Disaster

The North 40 Mountain Alliance (N40MA) is a local group dedicated to being prepared for and resilient in case of wildfire and other emergencies. We are comprised of the 3 fire districts – Glacier View, Red Feather Lakes, and Crystal Lakes.

Each fire district has a community information center called a Hub where you can go to obtain up-to-date accurate information or speak to a volunteer. The RFL Library is the central hub and is the main hub for Red Feather Lakes. All of the hubs are connected and work together under the umbrella of the North 40 Mtn Alliance. The Hub for Glacier View Meadows is the Mountain Meeting Place and for Crystal Lakes, it  is the Base Camp. The GVM and RFL hubs have backup power, internet, and phone (cell and landline).

Emergency Alerts are utilized by all agencies within Larimer County to get vital life-saving information to the public quickly and efficiently. Emergency Alerts, commonly referred to as a reverse-911, are used in many circumstances when there is a threat to public safety such as:

Missing endangered child (Amber Alert),

Missing endangered adult,

Flooding,

Wildfire,
Police activity that would require you to evacuate or take shelter,
Natural gas leaks,
Severe threatening weather (rotation in clouds, large hail with cloud rotation, tornado warnings),

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO SIGN UP FOR ALERTS?
The Emergency Alert System receives data from the 9-1-1 database and will automatically send alerts to all landline phones.
By signing up you will be able to receive alerts to your mobile phone in the form of texts, voice calls and emails.
You can register multiple devices (cell phones, emails etc) and sign up for several different locations that are important to you (i.e. your child’s school or your elderly parent’s house)

The information that you provide will be used for emergency purposes only. LETA will not give or sell your telephone numbers or email addresses to any other vendor or organization.
