Emergency Preparedness

It is in our interest that the residents of Monument are educated and well quipped with resources relevant to man-made or natural disasters. We need to plan and prepare for the worst cases (such as wild fires, disease, weather conditions, public health crisis, etc.). For when they do come, we are confident that our Town knows how to act and respond accordingly. 

The Town supports the Pikes Peak Regional Office of Emergency Management . The PPOEM is established to insure that local governments within El Paso County have the capability to survive a disaster, and to manage and conduct essential emergency functions to support our citizens. This capability of managing a survivable crisis includes the ability to direct, control, manage and coordinate emergency operations with cooperation from local governments, the state and federal government and nonprofit organizations.

Sign up for Peak Alerts to receive notifications sent through software called Everbridge, by public safety agencies in El Paso and Teller Counties. Peak Alerts notify you of emergency situations that are a threat to life or property and are deemed dangerous by public safety officials. Examples of emergency situations may include but is not limited to, natural or man-made disasters, hazardous materials incidents, missing persons, law enforcement activity impacting the public, evacuation notices, and more.
