Windsor encourages residents to be prepared in the event of flooding

As the weather warms and snowmelt causes rivers to rise, the Town of Windsor encourages residents to stay informed and make a plan. The best way to stay informed is to sign up for alerts and monitor sites that can assist you.

» Town of Windsor: Get Connected! with Windsor through Notify Me! website posts or social media.

» Emergency alerts: Windsor partners with the Larimer County Emergency Telephone Authority (LETA) for emergency notifications. You can register for free, even if you live in the Weld County portion of Windsor, and receive email, text or phone call alerts. If you are already registered, check back after June 1 and be sure you are registered for weather alerts, as well.

Planning is essential during emergencies; and failure to do so is costly — in all aspects. Being prepared means that a plan is in place that helps you obtain access to necessary resources and can sustain your well being if you are on your own for 72 hours or more. Being prepared and having a plan can also provide peace of mind that comes from confidence in what actions to take if the need arises. Planning at the community, family and individual level can help reduce fear, anxiety and loss that can accompany disasters, according to ReadyColorado.
