The Scotts Valley Fire Protection District utilizes secure entry systems from Knox® and Click2Enter® in aiding responding personnel rapid access to commercial buildings, access roads, and other structures. Commonly known as Fire Department Lock Boxes, these devices can only accessed by personnel from the District. Although these systems are only required on new commercial developments and access road gates serving more than two residences, the District highly encourages tenants of existing structures to install this time saving devices. Home owners now have the option of installing residential Fire Department boxes as well. Contact the District headquarters for more information about ordering or installing at 831-438-0211.
