Many are not aware, businesses and homeowners can be issued state citations for having too many false alarms. False alarms are deemed as alarms that have occurred as a result of an illegitimate purpose (improper code entry, accidental activation by employee(s) etc.). The Pennsylvania Crimes Code Section 7511 indicates that the owner can be cited after 3 false alarms within a 12 month period. There is a need for this violation to be addressed as the number of businesses/households which are equipped with alarms is extensive along with the need to have emergency personnel respond when a false alarm occurs taking them away from being able to respond to priority calls for service.
In North Fayette, we have expanded upon the PA Crimes Code and permit 6 false alarms per year prior to any citations being issued. Therefore a citation is not issued until the 7th false alarm and every additional alarm thereafter. If the alarms are a result of improperly working systems and proof of service is provided, the number of false alarms can be adjusted.
The purpose of enforcement is to ensure proper training of alarm use, to have faulty devices repaired and save unnecessary response to multiple false alarms so that emergency services can be utilized properly where necessary.
Title 18 Section 7511 can be located at the Pennsylvania General Assembly website.
