Commercial/Industrial False Alarms

Strongsville Fire Prevention is researching departmental responses to fire alarms. We are specifically requesting information regarding:

  • Requirements for locations having fire alarms requiring company personnel to respond to alarms regardless of the time of day
  • Information on whether fire department personnel are allowed to silence and reset alarms in the absence of company personnel
  • Information on fire department responses to multiple false alarms from the same faulty detector (eg. having a single FD individual respond non-emergency to establish that it is a false alarm)
