Below are emergency notification systems relevant to residents and businesses in the Town of Johnstown.
As a reminder, we do also have Town tornado sirens. A tornado siren is an outdoor warning system designed to alert those who are outside that something dangerous is approaching; a tool once very important to most agricultural communities. It is really important, that you also sign up for other emergency communications that can alert you while you are in your home, traveling, listening to your headphones, etc. Both Weld and Larimer Counties have emergency alert communications systems that you can register for to receive notifications to your cell phone, email, and landline.
