Are they responsible for an idiot that cant cook without burning their food causing an alarm that once again disturbs your precious time????

Can you imagine the liability they would face if they do not provide a fire protection system that gives everyone a chance to survive a real fire. Fire alarms are loud, obnoxious and bright for a reason. To save your life if needed.

Sorry to rant but I have been a full time firefighter for nearly 30 years and have a passion for this. Alarms are in place to save your life. There is NO WAY they will be 100% immune to false alarms. Systems have problems. People make mistakes, People pull alarm boxes just to be obnoxious.

To expect any compensation for your inconvenience an alarm system in place to save your life may have caused you is just ridiculous!!!!

Who do you look to for compensation if your home smoke detector goes off?????
You are totally right. I feel so stupid for missing such an obvious point.
It really isn't reasonable to hold Disney responsible for the false alarm unless we actually knew the false alarm was their fault (not keeping the system properly cleaned or updated, as an example).


This reminds me of something that just happened to us. My ADT system recently set off a false alarm on the first hot day we had in May. I now have to pay the Fire Department for making the house call (a fire alarm call can not be cancelled once set off). We were just discussing if ADT should be liable for reimbursing us since the false alarm was due to a fault in their detector. Its a question up for debate in our household...

Maybe the fault is with the detector manufacturer and not ADT. Should they be fined? What about the assembly line people who put it together? Should they be fined?
Why are we always looking to pass the buck and not accept some responsibility when things don't go our way??
More time is spent trying to get minuscule compensation than just moving on and learning a lesson. 1st world.

A fire alarm can't be cancelled once set off? That's not right IMO. Sometimes you just burn that bacon and you know you burnt that bacon and that you don't need the fire department. I'd get a different alarm company actually if that's ADT's policy.

It's like a 911 call. Although a call's received to cancel, it may not be the person in trouble who's cancelling it. People start fires and then try to delay/cancel the fire department so that more damage is done. I know it's shocking...

That's why our security services require password codes to cancel. FWIW we always could cancel anything.
