Knox Box Program

About the Program
 A Knox Box is a hardened steel case that fits over a resident’s door that can only be accessed by on-duty firefighting and medical personnel. The box generally will contain key(s) to gain entry to the house.

This has been proven beneficial for chronically ill or disabled persons, either temporary or permanently disabled.

With use of the Knox Box, the fire or medical personnel will not have to use forcible entry techniques to gain entry to the house, which sometimes lead to damage.
