Update your EC Alert settings

Subscribers to Eagle County’s EC Alert system are being encouraged to review their accounts to ensure they are receiving their preferred notifications. Since the start of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, the system has disseminated event and parking updates to the “Traffic” groups. Moving forward, those alerts will be sent to those subscribed to the “Special Events” category.  Traffic impacts due to the Championships will continue to be sent to both groups.

To update your subscription, visit www.ecalert.org and log in to your EC Alert account; note your log in name will be an email address. Click on the “My Alerts” tab. Under the “Eagle County Alert Areas” section, look for Special Events and click on the “add to group” checkbox to the right. If the checkbox is green and checked, you are already a group member.

EC Alert includes updates on traffic, airport, weather and other emergencies. The information is sent to subscribers via e-mail, text or other mobile devices. Alerts can be sent to any mobile devices: cell phones, pagers, Smartphones and PDAs, or via e-mail address.
