The City is Warning Residents About False Alarms

A notice recently posted on the City of Flin Flon website from Fire Chief Jim Petrie advises due to a number of false alarms all costs to the Fire Department responding to residential alarm system false alarms will be charged to the homeowner. Petrie explains what that means is the individual didn’t dial into the company quick enough or the company didn’t answer and something fouled up. He says what happens is the city responds to these and has to pay for the truck and the fire fighters that respond and it costs approximately 500 to 1200 dollars every time this happens which is a substantial amount of money that we all pay for.


Petrie says if it is a false alarm they will probably be charged 500 dollars for the first time according to the city bylaw. He adds if an alarm is received and the homeowner is not home the fire department has to get in so they will enter the home locked or not to establish the cause of the alarm.
