June 27, 2012 - City lifts pre-evacuation notices for south Boulder
The City of Boulder has lifted the pre-evacuation notice for the neighborhoods in south Boulder. A combination of more favorable weather conditions and the effectiveness of fire fighting efforts has decreased concern for the Flagstaff Fire to move into the City of Boulder neighborhoods. The fire is now estimated to be 30 percent contained. However, the city encourages residents to continue to be on alert if conditions change.
Residents in areas bounded by Dartmouth Avenue to the north, Greenbriar Boulevard to the south, Table Mesa Drive and the foothills on the west, and Broadway on the east were asked yesterday to be ready to evacuate.
Conditions continue to be dry. Community members should be alert to changing situations and prepared to react appropriately. As we see fires continue to burn throughout the state, all residents are encouraged to prepare important documentation and momentos should evacuation orders be necessary in the future.
In addition, anyone living or visiting Boulder is encouraged to register their contact information with the city’s Everbridge system at www.boco911alert.com to receive future emergency notifcations. Everbridge allows customers to register up to three phone lines for as many as five addresses so that individuals can create several layers of notification. As of early May, more than 20,400 individuals had registered their phone numbers in the system.
