For many of us, life in the mountains means peace, quiet, and solitude. However, there are times when communication is vital. To help facilitate better communication between the town and its residents, we have set up two ways of sending out alerts.
Everbridge is the emergency alert system for Boulder county, which will alert residents in case of danger, while Nederland's Text Alert System is a system powered by TextMyGov, which will allow Town Hall to push out notifications that may affect the town as a whole.
Please contact us with any questions you have about either system.
Everbridge is an Emergency Alert System Information that will send messages and reverse phone calls to anyone signed up in the unincorporated areas of Boulder County, including all municipalities, portions of Erie and Longmont, extending outside of the Boulder County line. Non-Boulder County individuals are strongly encouraged to register with their County emergency alert system.
If you have a landline from Century Link or VOIP phone from Xfinity/Comcast, your number is automatically updated in the Everbridge system. It is suggested that you create an opt-in profile that contains your mobile device information. When creating your account, consider entering the addresses for your home, work, child's school, loved ones, etc.You can choose to receive voice calls, text messages, TTY/TDD, emails, or faxes.
Nederland Text Alert System
The Text Alert System allows Nederland to communicate with residents via text. Currently, we use this system to text alerts of large events in town, road closures, and anything else that is pertinent to anyone living within town. In the future, we will also be using this feature to let residents report issues, fine information, and easily communicate with any town department, all from your phone. This service is powered by TextMyGov
This service costs nothing to sign up, and can be done directly from your phone.
