Knox Box Program

Knox Box Program

 

A Knox Box is a secure and mounted device that can hold keys, access cards, and full size binders of information for use by the Fire Department during after hours emergency calls for service. Key boxes allow businesses to prevent or reduce damage to their structure by Fire Department personnel during calls for service and provide a means for Fire Department personnel to access secure areas quickly. Key boxes are only accessible by Emergency personnel. Knox box keys should be updated whenever any major building changes have occurred, if access controlled areas have been added, and if locks have been switched out on site.With one master key, you can gain access to commercial and residential property. More than 11,500 departments in North America use Knox® products.
Property owners in your community store entrance keys or access cards in high-security Knox-Box® key boxes mounted near their building entrances. Each Knox-Box purchased by the property owner is keyed to a single master key controlled by your local fire department.With the Knox System, there is no waiting for a property owner to unlock the door in the middle of the night, and no forcing the door open to gain entry. The Knox Rapid Entry System reduces response time, property damage and the liability for lost keys.
