Knox Box Program
The KNOX-BOX® rapid entry system is a secure emergency access program developed for property owners and fire departments. When a fire breaks out or there is a medical emergency, Knox® products allow immediate entry into buildings and property without forced entry damage or delay. Property owners store entrance keys in high-security Knox-Boxes mounted near building entrances. Each KNOX-BOX purchased by a property owner is keyed to a single master key controlled by the fire department.
The West Sand Lake Fire Department has adopted the KNOX-BOX rapid entry system for access to secured buildings for firefighting or life-saving purposes.
The master key is electromagnetically secured in each piece of apparatus and can not be stolen. The master box is opened via radio tone from the County 911 center. Currently, we have more than 30 residents and business that have taken part in this life and property saving program.
