That's used to report a fire or accident, before phones and radio. Here's a similar call box in Glen Ridge.

Not this one... LOL All the ones in Kearny have been removed, one time back when I was in grade school our class went on a field trip to the Engine Company 1 firehouse, one of the firefighters showed how the board lights up when somebody pulled the switch at one of the boxes.. How the lights corresponded with the location of the box being triggered "pulled".
