Brenham Fire Marshall Steven Loving presented an updated ordinance for false alarms and the Brenham Fire Department’s response to them to city council members last week.

The previous statute was adopted in 1989 and stated that “Any person, firm or corporation having any type of fire alarm shall not be charged a fee for the first 12 false alarms responded to by the fire department within a calendar year. However, said owner will be charged $30 for each false alarm responded to thereafter within a calendar year.”
