Fishers-based Meyer Najem Construction made a recent donation to the Fishers Fire Dept. allowing for the department to purchase a pair of Knox Box key systems.
The boxes are a secure method in which the department can gain access into the home of participants of the WeCare community paramedicine program, who may have a repeated need for fire department response.
The systems are similar to a realtor’s key box, but are even more secure and require a key to open, which is locked inside the department’s fire trucks. A Knox Box allows the department to access a patient’s home without forcing entry such as breaking a window or bursting through a door if the patient is unable to get to the door.
The Meyer Najem donation will allow department responders to gain quickly gain access to the residence in case of emergency while the allowing the residence to easily be re-secured upon the completion of the run.
