Many people who are registered for emergency alerts in Teller and El Paso Counties received an email Monday informing them that they need to update some account information.
The email said that the Emergency Notification System has changed vendors and that residents need to create a new account with the new provider.
KKTV 11 News checked and the email is legitimate. Users should update their information by April 15, 2014
If you didn't get a notice, don't worry. The notice was only sent to folks who registered on an old notification system prior to July 2013.
Information provided on the emergency notification website is confidential and will not be shared or sold to any third party.
