A false alarm occurs when a private alarm system sounds an unintentional alarm that triggers an emergency telephone call to 911. Once our trucks leave the station, charges are incurred by the property owner. The charge for a Fire False Alarm call is $250.00.  We recommend that companies alert dispatch of the test date, time, and address of any tests, so that no trucks are dispatched if the alarm sounds during a test. The nonemergency number to report testing to fire dispatch (HVA) is 734.477.6550.

Enable Point Security manages all false alarm calls for both Ann Arbor fire and police. Their customer service number is 734.619.0550.
