17. This event really is not funny because......

false alarms like this tie up emergency resources that may be needed elsewhere. This was a problem when I was a volunteer firefighter where false alarms can tie up an entire department for a time, until the true nature of the alarm is determined and the run is cleared.

I believe this will be a worsening problem as more people install so-called "smart home" automated devices.

Cute story but that cop could have been needed at another location for the real thing.
