Info On FARA

The False Alarm Reduction Association is an association primarily of persons employed by government and public safety agencies in charge of, or working in, False Alarm Reduction Units.

Our goal is to assist these individuals in reducing false alarms for their jurisdiction.

We do this by facilitating the exchange of information, influencing legislation and establishing relationships and partnerships with other groups interested in false alarm reduction.

Established in 1997, FARA currently serves hundreds of members in the US and Canada through newsletters, conferences and educational programs.

It is the mission of the False Alarm Reduction Association (FARA)

  • to provide a forum for local government alarm ordinance managers to exchange information on successful false alarm reduction programs
  • to serve as a clearinghouse for agencies seeking to reduce false alarms, and
  • to foster an environment of cooperation among public safety, the alarm industry and the alarm user
