STORYTIME AT PUBLIC SAFETY - Longmont Public Safety is hosting a storytime for young children on the following dates: July 30th, August 6th and August 13th. These are held from 10:30am-11:00am. Parents and children attending these events must have a ticket for both the children and for the adults as space is limited. Longmont Public Safety uses Eventbrite for registration.

SMOKE ALARM VOLUNTEERS - Longmont Fire Services is seeking volunteers to help with contacting residents to determine the proper number of smoke alarms, to check devices, and install replacements if necessary. Teams will be accompanied by fire staff.
NO SWIMMING, TUBING, BOATING ON THE ST VRAIN AND LEFT HAND CREEKS - The Longmont City Manager has issued an emergency order that there be no swimming, tubing, boating, or other form of watercraft or other activity on the the St. Vrain and Left Hand Creeks within the City of Longmont, until further notice. The river channels remain obstructed by debris consisting of large rocks, concrete slabs, fallen trees, construction materials, and other such debris that has now created a higher level of risk to users of these two creeks and to the community. Given the risks created and increased by the flood, and exacerbated by these channel obstructions and the anticipated higher than normal spring runoff along the St. Vrain and Lefthand Creeks, this order extends throughout the Longmont city limits and applies until cancelled or revoked. For the St Vrain this means from Golden Ponds to 119th. For Lefthand this means from Hover to where it merges with the St Vrain.
