Stay alert with county warning system

In light of the recent fires in Basalt and El Jebel, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind valley visitors and residents of an important public safety alert system. Pitkin Alert is a very robust tool that will alert you to local information ranging from emergency public safety information (wildfire, road closure, etc.) to weather, traffic and special-event information throughout the Roaring Fork Valley.

This is the most efficient way for visitors and residents to get the most up to date accurate information from all public safety and government agencies. Pitkin Alert is fully customizable. You can receive as many alerts as you choose. I encourage all of you to visit to sign up and personalize your own alerts.

If you plan on attending the Labor Day concerts in Snowmass Village, use this system for concert safety information by texting JASASPEN to 888777.
