Knox Box Program
The Knox Box is a secure rapid entry system developed for property owners and fire departments. Any time there is a fire, medical emergency, automatic alarms, or any other emergencies that the Forest Park Fire Department would respond to, the Knox Box allows immediate entry into your home, business, or other property without having to use any forcible entry, which would only damage your property, and cause delays in reaching your emergency. With the Knox Box you simply store your keys in the high security box mounted near your entrance. When you have an emergency we release the master key located on our fire apparatus, allowing us access to your box and your keys.
Knox Box products are UL listed against physical attack and lock pick. The key switch and padlock provide a reliable, cost effective way to gain access, minimize response times and reduce liability while reducing response times.
If you would like to purchase a Knox Box, please contact the Knox Company at 800-552-5669 or visit their website at www.knoxbox.com.
