Emergency Notifications & Preparedness

Get Notified

We recommend that you sign up for the following services as they may cover different but overlapping issues.

Town of Telluride Text Notifications

The Town of Telluride uses CivicReady communications to notify residents and visitors about power outages, transportation issues, public safety matters, road closures, emergencies, and more via text message or email. When you sign up for Town of Telluride Text Notifications, be sure to read the instructions carefully to select the categories you're interested in. 

San Miguel County Alert & Warning

In late 2022, San Miguel County public safety officials switched their notification system from CodeRED to GEM. Anyone who was signed up for CodeRED will need to re-register for the new system. During an emergency, public safety officials must be able to reach those in the community who are most at risk. You can sign up and receive emergency notifications via voice, text, or email. The SMC Alert and Warning System (powered by GEM) is used for general alerts regarding emergency evacuations, road closures, road conditions, or severe weather, and is primarily for commuters, visitors, businesses, and residents. A text message will be sent to your mobile device and/or email outlining the nature of the emergency.
