System Down Reporting and Firewatch

Any time a fire alarm or sprinkler system is compromised in any way you must log on to the Denver Fire Department System Down Reporting Website and provide notification to us immediately. 

The procedure for reporting to the Denver Fire Department that a fire alarm system or sprinkler system is off line is as follows:

  • Read the provided documents pertaining to system down requirements and fire watch guidelines.
  • Click on the System Down Reporting Website link.
  • Follow prompts to input required information.
  • After notifying us that a system is down, the monitoring company must be contacted and informed that the system is down.
  • If an AES (American Electronic Services) box is applicable – Report the system offline on the new website and also contact the Denver 911 Call Center to inform that the system is down. 
  • Upon the system being back online, return to the System Down Reporting Website to notify the Denver Fire Department that the system is restored.
  • If a system is down for more than 10 hours, the new website will automatically notify Fire prevention personnel and contact will be initiated to institute a firewatch.
  • Since a fire alarm or sprinkler system can only be down for 10 hours in a 24 hour time period, the System Down Reporting Website cannot be utilized beyond that time-frame. If attempts are made to keep a system offline for more than is allowable the System Down Reporting Website will prompt the reporting party to initiate the firewatch process.  Firewatch is required after the 10-hour time frame.
  • Once a firewatch is initiated, you will no longer need to continue daily contacting the System Down Reporting Website in order to let us know about your compromised life safety system.
  • If you have additional questions during business hours Monday- Friday 7am-4pm, please contact Fire Prevention at 720-913-3474.
  • Outside of business hours please contact Fire Prevention at DFDSystemDownNotification@denvergov.org

Please open the referenced documents for more information, for documentation, and to apply for firewatch permits.
