What does this mean to Fernley residents and businesses? If you are not an alarm user, this will not affect you.
An alarm user means any person, corporation, partnership, proprietorship, governmental or education entity or any other entity owning, leasing or operating an alarm system, or on whose premises an alarm system is maintained for the protection of such premises. An alarm system means any single device or assembly of equipment designed to signal the occurrence of an illegal or unauthorized entry or other illegal activity requiring immediate attention and to which law enforcement is requested to respond, but does not include motor vehicle or boat alarms, fire alarms, domestic violence alarms, or alarms designed to elicit a medical response.
The City’s partner, Public Safety Corporation, will contact alarm users and alarm system businesses within the City of Fernley limits to register their alarm system or you can register your alarm online at:
There is no cost to register your alarm. You may also contact the Fernley False Alarm Reduction Program at (855) 732-9027 Monday through Friday 9 am to 5 pm to register your alarm or if you have any questions.
We at the City hope to substantially reduce the occurrence of false alarms for the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office.
