Make a Plan
Preparedness begins in the home. READYColorado encourages every person to develop a plan for responding to disasters. This includes having a well-stocked emergency kit at home, in the car, and at work.
Emergency Notification System
The City, in partnership with the Arapahoe County E-911 Authority, operates a state-of-the-art emergency notification system to alert citizens about emergencies and other important community news. The emergency notification system enables the City to provide essential information quickly in a variety of situations, such as fires, floods, evacuation of buildings or neighborhoods, and other emergencies.
Englewood City Council adopted the Arapahoe County Multi-Hazards Mitigation Plan 2015-2020 on December 21, 2015. The plan serves as a blueprint for coordinating and implementing hazard mitigation policies. The plan is available on the Arapahoe County website.
