Alarm Permit Application
Alarm System Rules
As of July 1st 2016, the City of San Carlos no longer charges a permit fee.
False alarms in excess of one (1) per fiscal year (July 1st to June 30th) will cause a service fee to be charged for the emergency response (8.16.070, San Carlos Municipal Code).
In the event that any alarm system activates more than twelve (12) false alarms within any one-year period, the alarm system permit shall be suspended and the alarm system shall be deactivated until written verification by the alarm company establishes that the problem causing the false alarm has been corrected (8.16.170, San Carlos Municipal Code).
