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 afterhours 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 accessible by Fire Department personnel only. 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.
Knox Boxes can be ordered online at Knox Box. This is the Suffolk Fire & Rescue website for Knox Boxes.
