If response is suspended to my alarm system, how can I get response reinstated?

Response to alarm systems may be reinstated if the alarm user:

  1. Pays, or otherwise resolves to the satisfaction of the Alarm Administrator, all fees and/or penalties; and
  2. Submits a certification from an alarm company, properly licensed by the City of Wichita, stating the alarm system has been inspected and repaired (if necessary), is in proper working order, and the alarm user has been re-trained on the proper use of the alarm system.

Reinstatement of response will be effective within five business days of the Alarm Administrator's receipt of payment and certification by the alarm company.
