Rapid Access for Safety and Security

The Kearney Fire & Rescue Protection District would like for the residents and business owners of our district to consider the use of “Knox Box”. While many businesses have them already, they were not required by ordinance until 2009. Buildings that change occupancy or remodel are required to install a Knox Box.

There is also a Knox Box for residential dwellings, for more information give us a call at 816-628-4122
