New False Fire Alarm Billing Company Starts Working for Pasadena Fire Department This Week

Published : Monday, June 19, 2017 | 1:22 PM

Bewtween July, 2015 and June, 2016, the Pasadena Fire Department responded to approximately 2,400 incidents relating to false alarms, unintentional alarm system activation, unintentional heat and smoke detector activations, system malfunctions, and other types of false alarms.

An estimated 1,300 (54%) of those incidents were considered second and subsequent false alarms at the same location.

Effectively processing false alarm fees helps to reduce responses to false alarms, and allow fire department resources to respond to actual emergencies.

The Pasadena Fire Department is working with Public Safety Corporation to manage the billing process of false alarm fees throughout the City of Pasadena. Public Safety Corporation will be utilizing CryWolf, their alarm monitoring service and software, to track and bill false alarms. Public Safety Corporation will administer all false fire alarm notifications, billing and collections for the City. The program will help to encourage fire alarm users and alarm companies to maintain the proper working order of alarm systems. The new software service will improve the reliability of fire alarms, and the readiness of public safety resources to better serve the community.

Public Safety Corporation began working with the Pasadena Fire Department on June 19, 2017.
