Records Requests

The Sable Altura Fire Protection District adheres to the requirements of the Colorado Open Records Act.  As such, public records may be requested by the public.  Basic Incident Reports are public information may be requested by anyone. However, a Patient Care Report (PCR) contains information that is legally protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”) that is called Protected Health Information  (or “PHI”). We are required by law to maintain the privacy of this information.

Reasonable fees for records as permitted by law, may be charged for research, and providing copies of any records as appropriate.
