If a notification is sent out, is it guaranteed I will receive it if I register

When an emergency alert is activated, the system will make several attempts to reach the registered numbers. Landline and cell phones may be inundated with calls and the provider may not be able to deliver the message. We do not assume legal responsibility for technical difficulties that may result in notification failures. Once an alert leaves the Boulder County system it is the cell phone carriers that decide if the information is sent.
