The system is used to communicate critical information including road closures, evacuation orders, wildfire information, and more. The SMC Alert and Warning System is a multi-channel (i.e. SMS, voice, email, etc.) communication solution that provides lifesaving emergency information powered by Genasys Emergency Management (GEM).
San Miguel County officials use the GEM notification system to alert and warn residents about issues that may affect your safety – such as wildfires, mudslides, floods, gas leaks, power outages, and other emergency notifications. It is also frequently used to warn citizens of road closures that may affect their commute to and from work.

Providing a home or work location is not required but not having a location in the system will prevent you from receiving critical alerts, such as wildfire evacuations, flash flooding, and other alerts that are geo-targeted (address based). We highly suggest inputting your address so you are able to receive alerts relevant to your home and work addresses.
You should register with SMC Alert and Warning as well as in the county where you live. Public officials of Delta, Montrose, Gunnison and Ouray counties are also implementing their own GEM alert systems – registration in multiple systems is encouraged to receive localized alerts at your home and work and to fit your needs.
