Lakewood communicates daily across several Facebook and Twitter channels. Alerts and emergency information will be shared with followers on these channels:
LookoutAlert Regional Emergency Notification System
LookoutAlert is the official emergency notification system of the regional collaborative of Jefferson County and all cities within it, the City and County of Broomfield and the City of Westminster. Through LookoutAlert, emergency responders are able to provide emergency and public safety messages to residents.
Jefferson County is moving the mass emergency notification system to the Smart911 platform because of the enhanced capabilities of this system. You can receive free emergency alerts 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 be automatically transferred to the new system. Use of CodeRED will end on June 30, 2022. To get the most up-to-date information and choose how and what 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.
SIGN UP TODAY AT LOOKOUTALERT.CO TO RECEIVE EMERGENCY NOTIFICATIONS.
NOAA Weather Radio
A National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio (NWR) is your single source for comprehensive weather and emergency information. Consisting of a network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from the nearest National Weather Service office, a NWR provides official Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In conjunction with Federal, State, and Local Emergency Managers and other public officials, NWR also broadcasts warning and post-event information for all types of hazards – including natural (severe storms or flooding), environmental (such as chemical releases or oil spills), and public safety (such as AMBER alerts or 911 Telephone outages). You can purchase a NOAA Weather Radio at any general merchandise store or numerous online retailers.

The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) is the nation’s alert and warning infrastructure. IPAWS provides public safety officials with an effective way to alert and warn the public about serious emergencies using the Emergency Alert System (EAS), Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio, and other public alerting systems from a single interface.
