The goal of the Chews Landing Fire Department and the Bureau of Fire Prevention - Fire District #2, is to provide the best and most up-to-date service to the people in our fire protection area. In contrast, maintaining keys to alarmed buildings or structures with difficult access has become unmanageable and causes delays when responding to emergencies.
In order to access buildings or structures quickly, minimize forced entry damage, and protect firefighters from injury, the Chews Landing Fire Department and Fire District #2 has adopted the Knox Box "Rapid Entry System". Currently, more than seven thousand fire departments and the communities they protect enjoy the benefits of this proven system.
Knox Boxes are constructed of 1/4" solid steel with a 1/2" steel door and reinforced locking mechanism. They are UL listed against physical attack and the Medeco security lock is patented and UL listed for drill, pick and pull resistance.
The "Master Key" to open the Knox Box is held only by the Fire Department. This high security is strictly controlled and is produced only by the Medeco factory under direction from an authorized Fire Official's signature.
Knox Boxes are specified by the Chews Landing Fire Department and/or Fire Prevention Bureau, but are purchased directly from the Knox Company. Once installed near the entrance to your property, the Fire Department locks your building entrance key inside the Knox Box so that it is available onsite for future emergencies.
Owners of all structures and businesses within Fire District #2, are urged to contact the Fire Marshal's Office at (856) 939-2090 ext. 124 for additional information concerning requirements, pricing and ordering information or you can visit www.knoxbox.com
