the fire department is summoned to respond to a commercial or industrial
building outside of normal business or operating hours. These responses often
include fire or smoke alarms that can only be properly investigated with
access to the inside of the building.
this reason, the Maumelle Fire Department encourages all of the city's commercial
and industrial occupancies to participate in the Supra Rapid Entry System
featuring key lock boxes. By using the Rapid Entry System to gain access
to a building, the fire department can rapidly investigate the possible emergency
inside without the delay of waiting for a keyholder or possibly damaging
doors or windows to force entry inside.
The lock boxes used in this program are manufactured by Supra, a division
of GE. The steel-clad boxes are UL-listed for security and can only be opened
with specially designed keys coded for and only accessible to the Maumelle
For more information about this program or to purchase a lock box for your
building, call or visit our station at 100 Millwood Circle during normal
