Introducing the Larimer County Whole Community Emergency Network
Out with the old, in with the new!
The Larimer County Special Needs Registry has evolved into the Whole Community Emergency Network!
What is it?
The Larimer County Whole Community Emergency Network is an emergency management initiative designed to foster collaboration and coordination amongst all community members, organizations, and governmental agencies. This inclusive process involves both a database on needs as well as available resources for community members and organizations.
