CyberLock Helps The Clark County Fire Department Control Class II Narcotics

Press Release Aug 11, 2017

Corvallis, Oregon—July, 2017—CyberLock, the leading manufacturer of smart key access control systems has assisted Clark County Fire Department in Nevada in controlling access to Class II narcotics.

Clark County’s Fire Department was in need of an access control solution that did not impede daily operations and was easily retrofitted into their existing hardware. CyberLock’s wire-free solution was the perfect fit. According to Jeff Reagor, the Clark County EMS supervisor, it was “imperative we provide[d] accountability for drugs we use[d]. We needed to know when our narcotic safes were being accessed and by whom.” The CyberLock system was a viable option to ensure this happened.

Clark County Fire Department installed the CyberLock system for tracking their narcotics. With 71 CyberLocks on mobile narcotic safes as well as stationary safes, Clark County Fire Department has the ability to control access and track access attempts to each of their safes.

Audit reports help to confirm that the appropriate person is taking inventory, checking drug expirations and ensuring that drugs have not been tampered with. Each safe is inventoried daily, one time per shift. If the audit report shows a safe opening any other time during the day it must correspond with an emergency call.

CyberLock will attend the EMS World TradeShow in October 2017 in Dallas, Texas to showcase how they can partner with other EMS professionals with similar needs. With a plethora of products to choose from, there is no doubt CyberLock can help EMS professionals secure their assets.
