[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Naples 10-16-1985 by L.L. No. 2-1985. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Noise — See Ch. 216.
The purpose of this chapter is to establish rules and regulations concerning the use and operation of devices known for the purposes of this chapter as "remote automatic alarms" and to attempt to minimize the number of false alarms generated by these remote automatic alarms, thereby promoting the health, welfare and safety of the residents of the Village of Naples.
As used in this chapter, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
- FALSE ALARM
- Any alarm or signal generated by a remote automatic alarm and transmitted to a receiver maintained by the Maxfield Hose Co., Inc., or by any state or local government or any subdivision or agency thereof and which was not generated in response to actual fire, smoke or the presence of an intruder.
- Any individual who enters in or upon premises when he is not licensed or privileged to do so.
- REMOTE AUTOMATIC ALARM
- Any device installed in or on any structure within the Village of Naples for the purpose of detecting the presence of an intruder or of smoke or fire and which is capable of communicating an alarm or signal by electronic, telephonic or other means to a receiver maintained by the Maxfield Hose Co., Inc., or by any state or local government or by any agency or subdivision thereof.
In the event that the Maxfield Hose Co., Inc., or any of its officers or agents, or any peace officer as that term is defined by the laws of the State of New York, shall respond to three false alarms generated by a remote automatic alarm located in a structure situate at the same address or location in the Village of Naples, the owner of the premises containing the remote automatic alarm shall, upon conviction, be guilty of a violation and shall be subject to a fine of $100.
Upon a second conviction under this section, a violator shall be subject to a fine of $200.
Upon a third or subsequent conviction under this section, a violator shall be subject to a fine of $250.
Notwithstanding the above, the term "false alarm" shall not mean an alarm purposely generated by the owner of a structure for purposes of testing the effectiveness of said alarm, provided that the Maxfield Hose Co., Inc., and the Ontario County Sheriff shall have first been given five days' written notice of the date, time and location such test shall occur.
