Under certain conditions, a reimbursement may be obtained following the receipt of invoices for false fire alarms.

Under section 5 of the by-law, the property owner who receives one or more invoices stemming from expenses incurred to install a new fire alarm system or repair the fire alarm system that caused the false fire alarm may request partial reimbursement of the said expenses using the form provided for that purpose, after paying the invoice(s) in question in full. The said owner will have 90 days from the issue date of the last invoice received to submit a reimbursement request. The request must include proof of payment of the expenses incurrred to install or repair the fire alarm system.

Once the Service de sécurité incendie de Montréal ensures that the fire alarm system is working properly, the lesser of the following amounts will be remitted to the owner:

  • 90% of the costs incurred to install or repair the fire alarm system;
  • 90% of the amount of the invoice or the total amount of the invoices received for the false fire alarm in the 12 months preceding the most recent false fire alarm, including the amount of the most recent invoice.
