Knox-Box Information

The Waynesburg - Franklin Twp. Volunteer Fire Company has engaged the services of the Knox Company to provide a Rapid Entry System for properties in our response area.

Fire departments across the country use the Knox® System to prevent costly forced entry damage while protecting property and lives. Knox key boxes, vaults and cabinets hold building entrance keys, electronic access cards and vital emergency information. Knox key switches and padlocks provide fire department access through property gates.

As the property owner, you purchase a KNOX-BOX® device then mount it near your building entrance or property gate according to fire department guidelines. Firefighters use a unique high security Knox® Master Key to open KNOX-BOX devices in their jurisdiction.

*Ten Reasons to Install a KNOX-BOX®
  • Eliminate needless, costly forced entry damage that may not be covered by your insurance deductible.
  • Assure immediate building entry by firefighters without delay or waiting for building keys.
