AAA: Free Service for Health Workers & First Responders

AAA Colorado to offer free emergency roadside assistance for first responders and healthcare workers – whether they are a member or not. 


DENVER (April 6, 2020) – AAA Colorado today announced that it will provide free emergency roadside assistance for all first responders and healthcare workers traveling to and from their duties anywhere across Colorado for the duration of the governor's "Stay-at-Home" Order. 

"Since 1922, AAA Colorado's mission has been to help Coloradans get to where they need to go safely, and with peace of mind," said AAA Colorado President & CEO Linda Cavanagh. "In these extraordinary times, we're committed to helping those who are helping Colorado get through this by making sure that they never need to worry about a breakdown."

AAA Colorado's emergency roadside assistance remains an essential service under all active public health and executive orders. To receive help, motorists should call 1-800-AAA-HELP and tell our local rescue center that they are a healthcare worker or first responder who broke down as they were headed to or from work. Our team will then dispatch a truck that will either repair the vehicle at the site of the breakdown or transport it to a destination of the motorist's choice within 100 miles if it's their first call for assistance or seven miles for every call thereafter. AAA Colorado's statewide network of Approved Auto Repair facilities remain open under active health and safety orders and are available to help. 

"So many are giving so much in service to our state right now," Cavanagh said. "In this small way, we hope to help take care of those who are taking care of all of Colorado. We're all in this together."
