Beware of False Fire Calls

False alarms have begun to increase in frequency in the Town of Sedgewick and are becoming a problem for our Fire Department.  False alarms cost the municipality money and put additional stress on our volunteer firefighting crew.

Please note that the Town of Sedgewick has the authority to charge residents and businesses in the event of a false alarm.  Town Council will be reviewing the amount charged at their December Regular Council Meeting when they will approve the Fees and Charges Bylaw for 2018.  Residents and business owners should expect to be charged in the new year in the event of a call-out being a false alarm.

Please take effort to work with your alarm monitoring company to prevent instances of false alarms.
