What is a Knox Box?

The Knox Box is a metal box secured to the outside of a building that allows firefighters immediate access to locked buildings, storage rooms, elevators, gates and other secured areas without causing property damage from forced entry procedures. The fire department is the only agency that is authorized to access the Knox-Box. It contains keys, electronic access cards, hazardous materials data and other vital information that firefighters will need when responding to an alarm.
