We strive to create sustainable communities and to protect life and property by empowering all who live, work, and visit the County to prevent, mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from all types of emergencies and disasters.

For phone information about an emergency, call the Larimer County Emergency Information Line at (970) 498-5500. Do not call 9-1-1 unless you have an actual emergency to report.


NOCO Alerts

We want to make sure you are alerted as soon as possible should an emergency happen in your area. But we need your help! 

LETA911 is our local emergency alerting authority for Larimer County. They will be the FIRST to alert you if there is a imminent threat to your life or safety. However, this service is opt-in, meaning if you do not register your device, we cannot reach you! 

Upon registering, you have the opportunity to register multiple methods in which to receive alerts, including your cell phone, email, or even pagers! Additionally, you can put in 5 different addresses to ensure that you are alerted if an emergency happens in multiple areas of concern, including your place of work, or perhaps where your kiddos go to school! If you or someone you know has access or functional needs, such as a dependency on oxygen or mobility needs, LETA allows that information to be registered as well, in case someone requires additional assistance in an emergency or evacuation. Lastly, you have the right to choose which alerts you want to receive, and can opt out of alerts that do not apply! 

Be alerted when it is needed most, sign up today for emergency alerts by visiting  www.nocoalert.org or by texting "NOCOALERT" to 888-777. 


Thank you to all our emergency responders and volunteers from throughout our community that participated in the UNITE Full-Scale Exercise in Larimer County. Many lessons were learned that will help us improve our systems in the future.
