Knox-Box Program

knoxbox 1

Knox-boxes are a proven safe, secure, and effective way for SLFD to quickly gain entry into local businesses and residents' homes without causing damage when it is locked and there is not a keyholder readily available.

SLFD recommends businesses and residents purchase and have a KNOX-box installed on their place of business or residence.  While SLFD does not purchase the boxes, we will assist you with ensuring you purchase the correctly keyed KNOX-box and help you locate the best place to mount it so first responders can find it quickly in an emergency.
