False Alarm Management Program of Suffolk (AMPS)
The Alarm Management Program includes graduated service fees to address those locations that generate false alarms. As accidents do happen, registered locations will receive two occasions that are not assessed a service fee. Locations not registered will be assessed a service charge for the initial false alarm.
