Safety Services Promote Knox-box Use
The Knox-Box rapid entry system is the modern method of allowing quick and safe access by emergency personnel to your home without a potentially dangerous delay while maintaining the security you desire. City homeowners are able to purchase a heavy-duty high security Knox-Box through the North Canton Fire Department. The cost is $150 to $190 for various models of Knox-Boxes depending on how it will be affixed to your home. Emergency responders have a special radio signal process and key to the box that would allow entry only in case of an emergency. Many of our residents already have contracts with medical alert companies that allow for emergency entry into their home. This system would allow quick entry into your home during an emergency without causing costly damage repairs. Visit the Knox-Box web site at www.knoxbox.com. For more information or to inquire about ordering a Knox-Box, call the North Canton Fire Prevention Bureau at 330-499-3404. (posted 12/20/06)
The North Canton Police Department is on Facebook and Twitter (@NorthCantonPD). The Department uses social media in an effort to get useful information out to the community and sometimes in an effort to seek assistance from the community in identifying/locating suspects of crimes. Additionally Facebook has been a useful tool in re-uniting lost/found dogs with their owners.
