False Alarms

False Alarms are still a big problem for the New Canaan Fire Company #1. The number one reason for false alarms? Contractors working in a building without properly protecting the Fire Alarm System from activation – cutting a wire, creating dust, etc.

False alarms have serious effects besides the obvious :

Sending Fire Fighters to one side of town and then receiving another call for fire on the other – causing a delay in response time.
