False Alarm Verification Back On The Table In Salisbury

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - For the third time this year, a false alarm verification system is back up for discussion in Salisbury.

In a work session Monday, the Salisbury City Council will discuss the program, which would require security companies to attempt to call the owner of a business at two different numbers (i.e.. the establishment and the owner's home) before dispatching emergency services, when an alarm goes off.

This is part of an effort to cut down on false-alarm fees, which were updated in April, when The Council approved the fee and fine changes for false alarms in Salisbury.  

The fees now run $120 for police response and $135 for fire, after the second false alarm call.  Fines can run up to $1,000 after the fourth false alarm response by the same responding department within one year.

A final decision likely, won't be made until a council meeting in three weeks.
