Knox-Box Rapid Entry System  


The KNOX-BOX® rapid entry system is a secure emergency access program developed for property owners and fire departments. When a fire breaks out, Knox® products allow immediate entry into buildings and property without forced entry damage or delay. Property owners store entrance keys, access cards and floor plans 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.


In addition to key boxes and vaults, Knox padlocks and key switches operate with the same master key. There are so many gated communities today that fire and police departments are delayed when responding to emergency calls. Increased property damage and even total loss is a threat when property is not accessible.

The Knox Rapid Entry System was developed to save property and lives.

The Adamstown Fire Company offers a KNOX-BOX® program to our residents and businesses in the Community.  Please contact us if you would like to participate in this program to save precious time or prevent damage in the time of an emergency.  You may also contact the Knox Company directly at 1-800-552-5669 to place an order for products.

Additional information on KNOX-BOX® products can be found at the Knox Company's website.

Ten reasons to install a Knox Box system on your home or business.

1. Eliminate needless, costly forced entry damage that may not be covered by your Insurance deductible.

2. Assure immediate building entry by firefighters without delay or waiting for building keys.

3. Protect inventory, equipment and supplies from unnecessary water damage caused by delayed sprinkler shut-off.

4. Satisfy local fire codes and emergency access ordinances.

5. Save time and aggravation by not having to drive to your establishment at 2:00 am for a false alarm.

6. Feel secure about emergency coverage when your building/residence is left unattended. The Fire Department holds the only key to the Knox-Box.

7. Maintain building security after a fire alarm investigation by simply re-locking the undamaged door.

8. Protect your property from thousands of dollars in damage with this one-time, low cost investment.

9. Depend on the highest lock box security available with attack resistant, UL tested reliability.

10. Knox-Box has been the chosen solution in 7,000 communities nationwide - communities just like ours!
