The KNOX-BOX Rapid Entry system is specifically developed for fire departments. By using a master key, the fire department can gain access to commercial and residential properties.
The KNOX-BOX system allows property owners of both commercial and residential to store keys, USB Flash Drives, and other floor plans in high-security lock boxes mounted near their building entrances or at specific locations in the facility or home. The lock box is keyed specifically to our departments master key. With the Knox System, the fire department does not have to wait for a property owners to respond to unlock a door in the middle of the night, and it alleviates the fire department in having to force the door open to gain access. The Knox Rapid Entry System reduces property damage, access time and liability for lost keys.
If you are interested in obtaining a KNOX-BOX please contacted the Office of the Fire Chief at 570-371-3888
