Notification to the fire department of a fire alarm system is not intended to, nor will it create a contract, duty, or obligation, either expressed or implied, of response. Any and all liability and consequential damage resulting from the failure to respond to a notification is hereby disclaimed and governmental immunity as provided by law is retained. The fire alarm system owner acknowledges that fire department response may be based on factors such as availability of fire department units, priority of calls, weather conditions, traffic conditions, emergency conditions, staffing levels, and/or adopted fire alarm codes. The city, its officers, employees, and agents shall not assume any duty or responsibility for the installation, maintenance, operation, repair, or effectiveness of any privately owned fire alarm system, those duties or responsibilities being solely those of the occupant/owner of the premises.
