- All animals in the City of Longmont are legally protected from being cruelly beaten, tortured, tormented, overworked, shot at, injured, killed, transported in a cruel manner, or otherwise mistreated or neglected to include protection from the elements. An animal should never be subject to teasing or provoked in a manner which causes fear or anger in the animal. All pet owners in Longmont must provide proper food and water for their animals. The animals must be fed at least once every twenty-four hours, and must have water available at all times. If the pet is kept outside, the owner must provide adequate shelter for their pet. Pets are also protected by law from being abandoned by their owners. If you have any questions about animal abuse or any other animal control issue, or you want to report animal cruelty or neglect please call Longmont Animal Control at (303) 651-8500.
If you have been bitten by any animal (this includes wildlife, exotic animals and livestock) within the Longmont city limits, the bite must be reported to Longmont Police Services Animal Control Unit at (303) 651-8500. This includes bites to any family members by their own pets. If an animal has bitten someone, an Animal Control Officer or a police officer will investigate the matter and take appropriate action. For health reasons, the animal may be quarantined for an observation period. The location of the quarantine is at the discretion of the designated officer. If your animal has bitten someone, including you, and the animal does not have a current rabies vaccination, it is imperative that you do not have the animal vaccinated until Longmont Animal Control advises you to do so. The quarantine period is necessary to determine whether or not the animal has rabies. If your pet is attacked by an animal, or if it attacks an animal, the Longmont Police Services Animal Control should be notified.
If you have any questions regarding animal bites, or you observe an animal acting in an aggressive manner, please call Longmont Police Services Animal Control at (303) 651-8500.
- Next to loose dog complaints, barking dogs are the most frequent animal nuisance call received by the Longmont Police Services Animal Control Unit. Under city ordinance it is illegal for any dog owner, or person having custody of a dog, to allow the dog to habitually bark, howl, or yelp in such a manner as to disturb the peace or to disrupt the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. Excessive barking can be extremely annoying to those people who are ill, shut in, or sleeping. To make matters worse, one dog barking often causes other dogs in the neighborhood to bark, which compounds the problem. Noisy animals can create neighborhood arguments, resentment, and other problems. Dog owners can often become accustomed to their own barking dog, and tune it out, where neighbors can not. As a dog owner, please take your responsibility as a dog owner seriously and put forth the effort to insure peace and harmony between you and your neighbors. For more information on barking dogs you may call the Longmont Police Services Animal Control Unit at (303) 651-8500.
Deceased animals are handled by two different city offices depending on the type of animal you have located.
1. WILD ANIMALS - If you encounter deceased wild animals in the public right-of-way, such as raccoons, squirrels or large animals like deer, please contact Public Works at (303) 651-8416, and they will send out someone to pick up the animal.

If you are in the unfortunate situation of having a family cat or dog that has died, you may take your pet to the Longmont Humane Society and arrange for cremation services. While some pet owners may wish to bury a deceased pet in their backyard, this practice is against municipal ordinance within the city limits. This practice is prohibited due to issues of health and safety, and the possibility of other animals getting into the burial site. Animal Control can be reached at (303) 651-8500.
- The licensing is designed to reunite lost pets with their owners by having accurate residential information that is readily available to the Longmont Humane Society, a 501 (c)(3), and the Longmont Police Services Animal Control Unit.

Dogs that run loose are considered a nuisance and present a possible danger to the public. In addition, they may be in danger of being struck by a car, shot, poisoned, trapped or attacked by another animal. If a dog is found running loose, it can be impounded and its owner cited for restraint and control. If you see a dog running loose, or have detained a loose dog, please call Longmont Animal Control, at (303) 651-8500, and provide a description of the dog and its current location. You may also take the dog to the Longmont Humane Society located located at 9595 Nelson Road, free of charge.
- The best way to ensure your pet does not get lost is to maintain your property enclosures and control your pet when off your property by placing it on a leash. If your pet becomes lost, the best way to ensure its return is to make sure it wears a collar containing a current rabies tag and a City of Longmont license. If your pet is lost, please contact the Longmont Humane Society, which is located at 9595 Nelson Road or call (303) 772-1232 and file a lost pet report.

The city made a decision in early April 2017, to deactivate the Outdoor Warning System . Instead, the city believes that activation of many new mobile weather phone applications and the use of weather radios will provide more efficient community notification for weather-based emergencies. As such, no further testing of the Outdoor Emergency Warning System will occur.
Without a doubt, the most effective way to learn about impending bad weather is the National Weather Service (NWS). The NWS, located in Boulder, provides weather, water, and climate data, forecasts and warnings for the protection of life.
This NWS center is monitored 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week providing up-to-the-minute tracking of weather within the area. The Longmont Office of Emergency Management highly recommends residents familiarize themselves with these resources and sign up for the notifications they provide. They are clearly the most effective way to receive information about the weather: National Weather Service Social Media Facebook and Twitter as well as their website.
For more information, please email or call the Office of Emergency Management at (303) 651-8438.
Prepare your car now, so that you will be ready in an emergency! An emergency car kit should include the following items:
- a battery-powered radio,
- a flashlight and extra batteries,
- a blanket,
- booster cables,
- a fire extinguisher (5 pound, A-B-C type),
- a first aid kit and manual,
- bottled water,
- nonperishable high energy foods such as granola bars, raisins and peanut butter,
- a shovel,
- a tire repair kit, and
- a tire pump.
If you are able to have a cell phone in your car, that can be your link to emergency help. For additional information for preparing your vehicle for bad weather, please email or call the City of Longmont Office of Emergency Management at (303) 651-8438.
A tornado watch means that weather conditions will support the formation of a tornado and a tornado may occur in your area. A tornado warning means that a tornado has actually been sighted or has been indicated by radar and may strike your area. Listen to a local television or radio channel for additional information and advice.
Please take appropriate action to protect yourself from the elements. Be aware of falling objects and/or flying debris. Your best protection is to locate an underground shelter or a substantial steel framed or reinforced concrete building. If you are at home, go to an underground cellar or basement. If you do not have a basement, take cover in the center of the house on the lowest floor, or take refuge in a small room such as a bathroom or closet. Stay away from windows, which pose a threat of flying glass and debris. Do not remain in a trailer or mobile home. Trailers and mobile homes are particularly susceptible to damage from tornadoes. If you are out of doors and shelter is not available, take cover in a ditch or lie flat in a ground depression or ditch-line. If you are in a car, DO NOT TRY TO OUT RUN A TORNADO!

Portable fire extinguishers apply an agent that will cool burning fuel, restrict or remove the oxygen, or interfere with the chemical reaction so that the fire cannot continue to burn. The fire department recommends that every home have at least one fire extinguisher with an ABC rating located near the kitchen. It is also a good idea to provide additional extinguishers in hazardous areas where fires are more likely to start, like the garage or basement. Extinguishers should be kept in a handy location near an exit door so that if the fire grows while you are getting the extinguisher, you won't get trapped. Everyone in the family should know where the extinguishers are located and how to use them. Check your fire extinguisher for detailed operation instructions. It is also important to occasionally check the gauge to make sure your extinguisher is fully charged.
Do not discharge your extinguisher to check for pressure because once the extinguishing powder gets on the seals, all the pressure leaks out. For additional information email or call (303) 651-8833 during normal business hours.
The flame from just one match can burn down your house in less than five minutes. Remember these steps to keep you and your family safe:
Working smoke alarms double your chances of surviving fire. Install smoke alarms on every level of your home and outside each sleeping area. If you sleep with the door closed, install one inside your bedroom too. Test your smoke alarms once a month and change the batteries twice a year. Make an escape plan with your family showing two ways out of every room, and practice your plan twice a year.
Always keep matches and lighters locked up and out of reach of children. Keep anything that can burn and children at least three feet away from heaters, fireplaces, and stoves. In the kitchen, never leave cooking unattended. The Longmont Fire Department offers a free home safety survey to every resident in Longmont. Firefighters will help you check your home for fire and safety hazards. For more information email or call (303) 651-8437.
- Juvenile firesetters fall into three general groups. The first group is mostly boys less than 7 years of age. Generally fires started by these children are the result of curiosity.
The second group are children aged from 8 to 12. Though some of their firesetting may be motivated by curiosity or experimentation, most of these children are setting fire as a cry for help. They may be suffering through separation or divorce in the family, an illness or death of a loved one, or problems at school. They don’t know how to talk about what’s really bothering them, so they set fire to attract attention to themselves as their cry for help.
The third group of firesetters are usually adolescents aged 13 to 18. They often have a long history of undetected fire-play and firestarting behavior. Their firesetting behavior may also be a cry for help or intentional delinquent behavior.
ALL children who have engaged in fireplay or firesetting need intervention. Firesetting rarely stops on it’s own without intervention.
The Longmont Fire Department has a free Juvenile Firesetter Intervention and Education program available to city residents. We evaluate future risk of firesetting through child and family surveys, provide fire safety education when applicable, and refer families to other community resources when appropriate. Please email or call (303) 651-8437 for assistance.

Most people who die in home fires are not in the room where the fire starts. Working smoke detectors alert people to the fire and give them time to escape in a situation where minutes can mean the difference between life and death. Make sure you test the batteries in your smoke detectors once a month. Change the batteries at least once a year and when the detector chirps, letting you know that the battery is low.
The National Fire Protection Association also found that regularly cleaning your smoke detectors and following the manufacturer's instructions may help stop nuisance or false alarms. If this doesn't stop them, install a fresh battery in the detectors giving nuisance alarms. Evaluate where your detectors are placed if the problem still persists. Cooking vapors and steam can set off a smoke detector. If the detector is near the kitchen or bathroom, try moving it farther away. If nuisance alarms continue, install a new smoke detector.
The Longmont Fire Department provides free smoke detectors to parents of newborns, seniors, and people who cannot afford them. We are also able to help seniors and people with disabilities with the replacement of batteries in areas where reaching the smoke alarm is difficult. Smoke detector information and contacts.

Individuals under 18-years-of-age who run away from their parents or guardians are not considered to have committed a criminal offense in the State of Colorado. When the police receives a complaint of a juvenile runaway, a field report is completed and the information is entered into both the Colorado and National Crime Information Center computer systems. Any law enforcement officer who comes into contact with runaway juveniles will then be able to check their status through these information systems. Officers making contact with reported runaways will take the juveniles into temporary custody, and will notify the parents or guardians. Parents and guardians are encouraged to take the initiative in locating their children by contacting their friends and acquaintances, and by checking locations their children frequent. Individuals who knowingly provide shelter to runaways without the consent of the parents or guardians can be charged with aiding or harboring a runaway, which is a misdemeanor.
