Why is an alarm ordinance needed?

Statistics show that the overwhelming majority of fire and burglar alarms that we respond to are the result of faulty and improperly maintained alarm systems. Not only do these false alarms tie up greatly needed resources, it puts the community in danger with vehicles responding with lights and sirens. The goal of this ordinance is to ensure that alarm owners are maintaining their systems properly, therefore, reducing or eliminating these false alarms.
