A false alarm is described as the activation of an alarm system signal or message
which elicits notification to and / or response by the Orlando Police or Fire Departments
when there is no evidence of a crime, fire, medical emergency or other activity
which warrants a call for immediate police, fire or medical assistance. This may
include, but is not limited to, an alarm discovered by a police officer or firefighter
before notification of an alarm from a monitor or from a local alarm system that
is not monitored.
