Emergency Preparedness: Living With Wildfire
Emergency Preparedness
Floyd Hill Residents are encouraged to sign up with both Clear Creek and Jefferson County Code Red for telephone evacuation notices in case of fire or other emergencies. Floyd Hill is technically in the Evergreen Fire Rescue District, but realistically either/both fire departments will be on the scene to fight a fire or to monitor a chemical spill.
The CodeRED system allows emergency dispatchers to deliver public safety messages to targeted areas or the entire county at a rate of up to 60,000 calls per hour.
