The program is designed to allow Fire Department personnel to access residents that are not exposed to fire safety messages in the community. As Fire Department personnel interact with the participants in the program, the personnel can promote general fire safety education including:
Home Fire Safety Checklists
Smoke Detector installation and operation
Carbon Monoxide monitoring
The program will be open to all residents of the City of Beavercreek and Beavercreek Township. However, due to the limited quantities of Knox-Boxes provided by the grant (50), priority will be given to the senior citizens of the community and those persons with special needs. All Knox-Boxes purchased for the loan program are property of the Beavercreek Township Fire Department. As residents participating in the program no longer need the Knox-Box, Fire Department personnel will retrieve them and place them back into inventory (for future distribution).
