The Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) staff continue monitoring statewide weather conditions and impacts through a virtual State Emergency Operations Center (EOC) activation. Staff began monitoring more than twelve hours ago. The State EOC remains in direct contact with local county emergency operations centers, emergency managers and emergency responders. The State EOC is briefing the governor and his staff as they closely follow the situation.
There have been no resource requests from local jurisdictions. Weather conditions have included everything from localized flooding to tornadoes and mudslides to expected snow.
DHSEM regional field managers have contacted each emergency manager impacted by weather conditions. The State EOC staff and regional field managers are working closely with eleven jurisdictions and their emergency operations centers, including:
- Carbon Valley (EOC activated)
- Cheyenne County
- Colorado Springs County
- El Paso County
- Elbert County (EOC activated)
- Jefferson County (EOC activated)
- Larimer County (EOC deactivated)
- Logan County (EOC activated)
- Weld County
- State EOC (virtual EOC activation)
The State has committed resources from several agencies to provide support to local communities. These resources include:
