[ARCHIVED] City to Resume Billing for False Alarms

Resume Billing False Alarms

(HAZELWOOD, MO - July 12, 2021) – The City of Hazelwood’s City Ordinance number 1308-78, City Code Section 240.010 through 240.050, provides for the City to charge a fee for false alarms in Hazelwood businesses. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, billing for False Alarms was placed on a temporary hold for Hazelwood businesses. The City will again begin billing Hazelwood Businesses for false alarms on Aug. 1, 2021. 

False alarms place an unnecessary burden on City. In order to respond to a false alarm, police and fire equipment and personnel are taken out of service to investigate the alarm, making those resources unavailable to answer emergency calls. This ordinance is intended to help reduce the number of false alarms from businesses. Information regarding the False Alarms Ordinance can be found on the City’s code website at
