Do I need a permit to install a fire alarm, and/or burglary, panic or robbery alarm system in my home or business?
Yes, a fire alarm permit is required by the Code Compliance Department for the installation or modification of a fire alarm system, either hard-wired or remote, 12 or 24 volt.

If the system is a monitored system, than the fire alarm contractor must be registered with Manheim Township, and for residential systems, the Pa State Attorney General’s office as well.

For more information regarding fire alarms, contact the Code Compliance Department at 717-569-6406 ext. 6 or codecompliance@manheimtownship.org.

Additionally, the Manheim Township Police Department requires an alarm (security) permit for all properties using a burglary, panic or robbery alarm system. This permit is valid for up to three years.

NOTE: For information regarding permitting for the installation of a burglary alarm system in your home or business, contact the Police Department at 1825 Municipal Drive, or call 717-569-6401 or email to police@manheimtownship.org.
