What is a KnoxBox?

A Knox Box is a small, wall-mounted safe that holds building keys for fire departments, emergency medical services, and sometimes police to retrieve in emergency situations Local fire departments can hold master keys to all boxes in their response area so that they can quickly enter a building without having to force entry or find individual keys held in deposit at the station. Sometimes the Knox Master Key is stored in a key retention device such as Sentralok or KeySecure. Knox Master Key retention devices provide accountability on access to the key. THe Town of Essex is fortunate to have the KeySecure system which accounts for all activity with KnoxBoxes in town. A KnoxBox can also cut fire losses for building owners since firefighters can enter buildings without breaking doors or windows. It can also reduce the potential of a firefighter being injured forcing entry. To order a KnoxBox for your home or business, please visit www.knoxbox.com and choose products.
