Being Ready as a Community
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,
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),
