Did you know ….. ?
Several residents have recently had a concern regarding their Electricity Meter Boxes. You can secure these boxes with an “Energex Approved” padlock.
These padlocks are available from Fort Knox Locksmiths in Caloundra at $65 for your ‘approved’ padlock and two keys. The Electricity Meter Reader has a ‘master key’ which is used to open these padlocks.
You may need to install a latch as well which is readily available from Bunnings.
So if you have concerns regarding the security of your meter box, this is an answer for you.
(Comment from a reader: Just to let anyone know who is thinking of purchasing an Energex padlock from FortKnox Locksmith @ Caloundra. You will need to give them a call first to check that they have the special padlocks in stock, you will also need to bring with you your latest power bill from your supplier so that account information can be sent to Energex by FortKnox. When you purchase the latch for the meter box be sure that it is a ” security ‘ latch.)
BeCA strongly urges any resident with any concern regarding the security of themselves or their home should contact Police Link on 131444 as their first option or 000 if they fear for their safety.
Chopperline has contacted BeCA to inform us that flights from their helicopter training school will be even less than the week just gone. BeCA thanks Chopperline for keeping BeCA and residents informed.
