Dear City & County Alarm Owner/User:
Help us help you reduce false alarms at your home or business. False alarms take emergency personnel away from more serious matters and are costly to all parties involved – that includes you!
Alarm classes are not mandatory and there’s no cost for you to attend. By attending the class, the alarm user will be awarded a certificate, which can be used to waive the highest fine on the account.
The Burglar Alarm Class will covers:
- Alarm Ordinance
- Components of an alarm system
- What you can do to reduce false alarms/ false dispatches
- Appeal process
- Suspended/ Revoked accounts
- Alarm penalties
- Responsibilities of:
- Alarm Operators
- Alarm Contractors
- Alarm Monitoring Companies
- Alarm Administrators
Burglar Alarm Classes are held every 3rd Thursday of each month (excluding November & December) at 6:00 pm.
Fire Alarm Classes are conducted by the City and County Fire Marshal every quarter of the year at 7:00 pm.
Classes are held at the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office in the Combined Communications Center Building. Please call our office or send your name and number via e-mail to sign up
Class participants/attendees must be 18 years of age or older. Out of courtesy for the instructors and students we request that you leave children at home.
