Message from the Chief:

(Click on photo above for a description)
The Hancock VFD recommends installing one of these on any gated roads, driveways, etc, and any buildings that currently have a keyed padlock that the Fire Dept may need to access incase of Fire, Forest Fire, Water Search n Rescue, or any unforeseeable emergency. These are 4 digit combination locks, that the code can be provided to the FD for Emergency Use only.
These codes can be changed easily incase of employee turnover, or denying access to a previous Key Holder. No need to buy a new padlock and make new keys.
These are available at most any hardware store, and the Hancock VFD does not recommend any one over the other. The link is for ID purposes only.
Changing your Keyed padlocks to one of these, and providing the FD with the code, also prevents the padlock from being cut incase of Emergency.
Any questions or comments, please contact the Chief.
