False Fire Alarms


Residential and commercial fire alarms are a great way to protect your property. False alarms however, can be a huge drain on emergency services. All residents and businesses that have automatic fire alarm systems are asked to maintain them in such a way so they do not cause multiple false activations. After a certain amount of false alarms, the property owner can be cited by the police and billed by the fire department. If you feel there may be a problem with your alarm, please have your monitoring or security company check it to be sure it is operating properly.
