Alarm Registration

Under the County's current ordinance for false alarms, it is required that all household alarms be registered.

An unauthorized alarm occurs when the police, fire, or other County emergency department responds to an alarm where no criminal activity, fire, medical, or other emergency has occurred. If you are experiencing equipment problems, please contact your alarm company for service. Please contact Sharon Miller if you have any questions @ 770-288-7866.
