Altoona, PA, May Charge for False Alarms

Altoona, PA, is tackling two issues at once raising money and cutting down on false alarms.

On June 12 during the city council meeting, city officials tried to cut those numbers down by taking the first steps to charging people for making too many false alarms and getting insurance companies to pay part of the bill when they have to roll out.

You would get a written warning for the first two false alarms in a year. The third time will cost you sixty dollars and go up from there.
