Address Signage
A few years ago, the Dexter Firefighters Association saw a need. Better address marking for businesses and residences. We often found ourselves responding to emergency calls and having difficulty locating the homes due to small or missing address signs. Below is the form that you can fill out and drop off at the Dexter Area Fire Department station number one, which is located in the Village of Dexter at 8140 Main Street. Your sign will be ready for pickup within 72 hours. Click here for more information

Knox Box

A Knox Box is a secure entry system that only the Dexter Area Fire Department can open in the event of an emergency. Call the Dexter Area Fire Department Fire Marshalls Division and request a Knox Box Company form. Send the completed form to the Knox Company. Your Knox Box will arrive unlocked. All you have to do is call the Dexter Area Fire Department to confirm the location of the Knox Box. When your Knox Box is installed the Dexter Area Fire Department will come to your home and place the needed keys into the Knox Box. Click here for more information.
