False Alarms 

What is a False Alarm?

A false alarm is any alarm caused by human error or equipment problems that requires police or fire response when there is no evidence of an actual crime or fire.

Alarm systems were originally designed to protect lives and property. Properly installed, used, and maintained alarms are a real asset. When misused they become a liability. Each year false alarms cost citizens millions of dollars.
