I am available for pro bono work if anybody knows this gentleman.
All jokes aside, I do not condone this man's actions. Causing a false fire alarm puts rescue workers and other citizens at risk, as well as causes the costly mobilization of first responders, potentially removing them from actual emergencies.
Pulling a fire alarm without just cause is a serious offense. Often times it is kids that pull fire alarms for the thrill. Juvenile charges can have lasting effects on a child, and parents can be held civilly liable for the willful acts of their children. An adult charged under MGL Chapter 269, Section 13 could face fines up to $500, or even jail time.
This seemingly victimless crime can have serious consequences. Just ask the Steelers.
