Do you need a Knox box?
If you own a business or large residential building you are required to obtain a Knox Box. A Knox Box is a small, wall-mounted safe that holds building keys for fire departments, emergency medical services, and sometimes police to gain rapid entry into a building. In an emergency, lack of immediate access can endanger lives and cause property damage from:
- Forcible Entry
A KnoxBox can also cut fire losses for building owners since firefighters can enter buildings without breaking doors or windows. It can also reduce the potential of a firefighter being injured forcing entry.
What is inside of a Knox Box?
It usually contains all necessary keys, pass cards, and other relevant items to ensure after-hour entry should emergencies occur. The "Knox Box" system is a secure and established system that is used throughout the country.
For information or to get a Knox Box application, contact your closest fire department.
