KNOX BOX RAPID ENTRY SYSTEM
In order to access buildings quickly, minimize forced entry damage, and protect EMS/Firefighters from injury, we have 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. DO YOU have buildings or property in Miami Township secured by locked doors or a gate? You can PREVENT UNNECESSARY DAMAGE to your building or gate in the event of an emergency by participating in this program. The Knox lock box system can give the Fire Department emergency access while giving you peace of mind that your property is secure. The Miami Township Fire/EMS Department has invested in this system. Should you?
JUVENILE FIRE SETTERS
Children set fires for many reasons. If a child plays with fire that doesn't mean they are a problem child. When children have repeated and intentional fire starting behaviors, fascination becomes a problem. Through education, and in some cases counseling, children and their families can be given the skills to change this dangerous behavior. Studies show that fires started by children playing with matches and lighters are the leading cause of fire deaths for pre-school children and account for more than 1/3 of their fires deaths.
