The Seguin Police and Fire Departments combined respond to hundreds of false alarms every year. Many valuable resources are tied up responding to these calls when real emergencies are occurring. False alarms often cause unnecessary safety risks to emergency responders as well as citizens during a response.
In compliance with Chapter 42, Sec. 42-27 of the city's Code of Ordinances, the City of Seguin requires an Alarm Permit for all Residential and Business alarms operating within the City. With the alarm companies, the user of the alarm system, and the City working together, we can significantly reduce the number of false alarms.
Permit Fees Annual residential alarm permit fee is $25. Annual commercial alarm permit fee is $50.
