Anyone operating an alarm system that is monitored by a Central Station is required to obtain an alarm registration. A separate alarm registration is required for each alarm site having a distinct address, business or suite number. For an office complex, that means that the building owner must register his or her fire alarm system, and if a tenant has their own burglar alarm, they must register that separately. Alarms not required to be registered are those not connected to a Central Station Monitoring Company, those installed on an auto, on one’s person or an alarm system which will not emit a signal either audible or visible from the outside of the building or residence but is designed solely to alert the occupants of a building or residence.
– How do I register my alarm?
All residents, as well as commercial businesses who have an alarm system that meet the above conditions are required to register their system every year by January 30th. After the first year of registration, renewal notices will go out every year to remind residents and businesses to re-register their systems. New alarm systems are required to have a valid alarm registration within 10 days of the installation or activation. You can also access an online site to download alarm registration forms by clicking on link: ALARM REGISTRATION FORM
– What is the cost of an annual alarm permit?
The cost of an alarm registration or its renewal is $25.00 for each calendar year. Should your information change during the course of the year, just fill out a new form. There is no fee to update information.
No refund of a registration fee will be made.
