Five free false alarms are allowed in a one-year period. The one-year period begins at the time you have your first false alarm. All others are billed at the rate of $75 each, until the one-year period ends. You then begin a second period with another five free false alarms, and the process continues. Your alarm permit can be revoked for non-payment of assessed fines or have more than nine fake alarms in a one year period.
