System Down Reporting and Firewatch

Any time a fire alarm or sprinkler system is compromised you must notify Denver Fire Department, through the System Down Reporting Website. If a system is down for longer than 10 hours, a Firewatch Permit is required. Please read all of the information below related to this process. 

  • Click on the System Down Reporting Website link and enter all required information. .
  • Next, inform your system monitoring company that the system is down. If an AES (American Electronic Services) box is applicable - report the system offline and contact the DFD Non-Emergency Dispatch line at 720-913-2400 and inform them that the system is down. 
  • Once the system has been down for 10 hours, you will be notified by a Fire Prevention Officer that you are required to apply for a Firewatch Permit. Firewatch is required after the 10-hour time frame. Once a Firewatch Permit has been obtained, you will no longer need to continue daily reporting to the System Down website. 
  • Firewatch Permits can be initiated once approval is obtained from a Fire Prevention Officer, please apply via E-Permits - Accela Citizen Access
  • Once the system is back online,  notify the Denver Fire Department via the System Down Reporting Website

For additional questions please contact Fire Prevention at 720-913-3474. Outside of business hours please contact Fire Prevention at DFDSystemDownNotification@denvergov.org
