The Estes Park Emergency Communications Center (EPECC) is embedded within the Estes Park Police Department (EPPD) facility and is the primary 9-1-1 Public Service Answering Point for the entire Estes Valley, including Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). EPECC is a consolidated dispatch center that serves the Estes Park Police Department, Estes Park Health's Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Estes Valley Fire Protection District, Glen Haven Fire Department and various municipal departments. EPECC also dispatches EMS to Allenspark, Pinewood Springs, and Big Elk Meadows, and provides dispatching services in the evening hours for RMNP. EPECC is staffed with 8 emergency communication officers (dispatchers) and a manager, overseen by Police Captain Corey Pass. They perform these services with the use of top of the line technology.

The Town of Estes Park of Estes Park and Estes Park Police Department (EPPD), in partnership with Larimer Emergency Telephone Authority (LETA), offer a special emergency notification services for visitors. This temporary alert system, GO EPALERTS, is geared toward visitors of Estes Park. Visitors can text GO EPALERTS to 888-777 to opt-in and receive alerts (if any are sent out) for a two week period. The visitor’s cell phone number will automatically be added to the database used by the Estes Park Emergency Communications Center, for emergency mass notifications during the following two-week period.
Because GO EPALERTS subscriptions expire after two weeks, this system is not intended for long-term use by residents of the Estes Valley. Residents should continue to sign up for full emergency alerts through www.leta911.org.
