Can my false alarm fee be waived?
By ordinance, only false alarms caused by hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes or other catastrophic events, are subject to appeal. Alarms activated by electrical storms, thunder, hail, or sudden changes in temperature do not meet the standards for waiver of false alarm fees. Alarms activated by accidental but legal entry to the property (children returning home, guests, neighbors looking after your home while you are on vacation) do not meet the standard for waiver.
Loss of electrical power supplied by the utility company is also not a viable reason for waiver. You must provide an alternate source of power in order to prevent false alarm due to loss of electrical power, we suggest battery power as an alternate.
