Lock Boxes available

Morinville Fire Department Captain Steve Hammond made a presentation to the Chamber on the Lock Box System, which allows the fire department to quickly and safely enter a propery in an emergency response. Hammond said the Morinville Fire Department has initiated the use of the MIWA High Security Key Box System. The MIWA magnetic cam lock key is registered with the Fire Department with an assigned code right from the factory. With the restricted design of the cam lock key it is not possible for it to be decoded or for a duplicate to be made. Businesses and building owners can purchase the key boxes from the Fire Department, who will coordinate the installation of the lock box with a certified installer. Hammond said the High Security Key Box System is also used by departments, including the City of Lethbridge, Camrose and Spruce Grove.
