(a) No alarm holder shall allow more than three chargeable false alarms, as defined by Section 524.01(d), to be transmitted to public safety personnel during the immediately preceding one year calendar period. An alarm will be classified as false if the responding public safety personnel see no evidence of fire, robbery, burglary, vandalism, unauthorized intrusion or medical emergency.
(b) If the alarm holder proves that the alarm was caused by an event not reasonably foreseeable and which could not have been prevented by the proper adjustment or pre-setting of the sensor threshold, the alarm will be designated a nonchargeable false alarm. Such evidence shall be presented to the Director of Public Safety or his or her designee, within 14 days of the false alarm. Failure to provide the evidence in a timely manner shall exclude any consideration of the evidence.
(c) Whoever violates division (a) of this section is guilty of a minor misdemeanor in addition to any other fine or service charge provided by this chapter.
