Training this week consisted of forcible entry, saws, and operating everything that has a small engine! Training on the small tools and equipment is just as critical as training on the big trucks.
Anytime we get to train on busting doors open and cutting stuff up is always fun! ... See MoreSee Less
Quick reminder about lock boxes for commercial buildings in Ste Genevieve!“Save your business from costly lock or entry repairs"
Did you know that the Ste Genevieve Fire Department participates in the Knox Box Program?
With one master key our fire department can gain access to commercial properties. More than 11,500 Fire Departments in North America use Knox® products. The Knox System includes UL listed lock boxes and storage cabinets.
SGFD uses the KeySecure®, master key security system, to control the Knox Master Key. These Master Key Retention units provide accountability with an audit trail giving the date, time and user ID for each key release. Property owners in our community store entrance keys, access cards and floor plans in high-security Knox-Box® key boxes mounted near their building entrances. Each Knox-Box purchased by the property owner is keyed to a single master key controlled by your department.
With the Knox System, there is no waiting for a property owner to unlock the door in the middle of the night, and no forcing the door open to gain entry. The Knox Rapid Entry System reduces response time, property damage and the liability for lost keys.
To order your Knox Box, go to www.knoxbox.com
If you have any questions regarding the Knox Box program you can contact us for more information here on Facebook or call 573-883-5321 ... See MoreSee Less
