About Ready Colorado

READYColorado is Colorado's official source for homeland security and all-hazards preparedness information. This campaign is supported by numerous public and private partners.

READYColorado began as a project funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) program known as the Denver Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI).  Using a regional approach, UASI unites many metro area cities, emergency response agencies, and private partners together to enhance preparedness and response capabilities. The campaign transitioned to the State of Colorado in 2011 and is currently managed by the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) within the Colorado Department of Public Safety (CDPS). 

Colorado is a beautiful state but not immune to hazards brought on by nature and other sources. READYColorado is here to assist you to become better prepared regardless of your age, ability, or income. 

With READYColorado, you can discover the risks in your area, and the steps you can take to help you and your family face the challenges presented by these risks while continuing to enjoy every benefit Colorado has to offer.
