Aspen, Colorado – April 29, 2016 – Earlier this month, there was a notice sent to a
number of local property owners on Aspen Fire Protection District's letterhead that also
appeared to have been signed by Aspen Fire Protection District’s Fire Marshal. If you
received one of these notices regarding alarm system maintenance in the mail, or
elsewhere, please be aware that this letter was in fact not generated nor authorized by
The Aspen Fire Protection District, and did not contain accurate information.
Understandably, the content and nature of this falsified letter have caused a great deal
of concern among many homeowners and others within our fire district. If you have any
questions regarding response procedures as they pertain to monitored alarm life safety
devices, or any other questions or concerns, please feel free to call the Aspen Fire
Protection District office at (970) 925-5532 or stop by our offices at 420 E. Hopkins
Avenue. To view a letter from the Fire Marshal regarding Aspen Fire’s alarm policy and
procedures, please go to our website at www.aspenfire.com and click on the "Public
Information and Events" tab.
To all those within the Aspen Fire Protection District, and the many of you who have
called or stopped by already regarding this unfortunate issue, please rest assured that
the Aspen Fire Protection District staff and dozens of Aspen Volunteer Firefighters are
always here to respond and assist you in your time of need.
