Press Release from the Teller County Board of County Commissioners, Teller County Sheriff’s Office, Cities of Woodland Park, Cripple Creek and Victor and the Office of Emergency Management:
The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is currently overseeing a virtual command post in partnership with the State of Colorado’s Department of Homeland Security, Teller County response agencies, and other County Departments. The Department of Public Works, in collaboration with Teller County Search and Rescue, is actively supporting emergency responders in reaching our residents. We encourage everyone to limit travel and stay at home whenever possible. Our dedicated plow teams are working tirelessly to keep main roadways open for emergency services.

The OEM is closely monitoring and coordinating with utility companies to address reports and requests for assistance. Efforts are underway to promptly restore power and gas to impacted residents. We kindly ask residents to contact their utility company for updates rather than calling 911 for this information.
In case of a medical emergency, call 911 for immediate assistance. For life-saving medication or severe need of medical oxygen, dial 911 as well. Please note that response times may be delayed due to hazardous road conditions and ongoing snow accumulation. With further snowfall anticipated, we are preparing for another operational period. Residents should be prepared for limited services and challenging conditions within Teller County for at least the next 24-48 hours.
