MCFD, MCPD respond to false alarm at Mercy

MASON CITY – Friday at about 11:15 AM, Mason City police, fire and ambulance all responded to a fire call at Mercy Hospital east campus, 1000 4th Street SW. A construction worker tripped an alarm, which summoned authorities.

Exact figures are not immediately available from the Mason City Fire Department, but false alarms at Mercy seem to be fairly common.  Sources tell NIT that a false alarm typically costs taxpayers between $500 and $800 after all the expenses such as wages, fuel, wear on vehicles, etc, are totaled.

Mercy Hospital is not charged by the city for false alarm calls.
