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 Fire Department personnel, not by police or other first responders. 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.
ATTENTION: When purchasing a Knox Box online your request will not approved by the Fire Inspection Bureau until a site visit has been performed in order to verify the optimum location of the device.
