We want to make sure everyone possible in Teller County is able to receive emergency notifications that are specific to their locations. We recently found that some residents were having trouble or confusion accessing Peak Alerts, the emergency alert system from the El Paso and Teller County 9-1-1 Authority. So this episode will help you along with the process, let you know about the system's capabilities, and dispel any false rumors about the system.
Once registered the phone numbers you may receive notifications from are:
The Teller County Sheriff's Office: 719 387 7723
The Woodland Park Police Department: 719 354 2703
Or the 9-1-1 authority: 88911
