Emergency Notification System Planning Underway


Emergency Notification System Planning Underway


Additional sirens are under evaluation for Wildridge, Wildwood, and Mountain Star; Public Hearing scheduled for April 19


After installing Avon’s first siren at the top of Wildridge in Spring 2021, the Town of Avon is considering additional sirens for the “Northern Hillside Communities” this summer. A public hearing is scheduled for April 19 with the Planning and Zoning Commission to review and collect community input. The goal is to provide a uniform, effective audible warning system in the event of a wildfire.
 This type of system will complement other notification tactics already used during emergencies, including but not limited to reverse 911, EC Alert/Everbridge, IPAWS, radio, social media, temporary signage, and door-to-door evacuation protocols.
 The plan includes four (4) additional sirens: one located at the O’Neal Spur Park, one at the Saddleridge apartments (formerly Wildridge firehouse), one at the public works (“Annex”) above Wildwood, and one above Mountain Star near the water tank.
For more information and to review the modeling for these additional sirens, please visit or contact Planning Director Matt Pielsticker at (970) 748-4413 or
