Knox Box Rapid Entry System
The goal of the Five Points Fire Company No. 1 is to provide the best and most up to date service to the people in our fire protection area. In contrast, maintaining keys to alarmed buildings and residences have become unmanageable, and causes delays when responding to emergencies.
In order to access buildings quickly, minimize forced entry damage, and protect firefighters from injury, the Five Points Fire Company No. 1 has adopted the Knox-Box Rapid Entry System. Currently, more than seven thousand fire departments and the communities they protect enjoy the benefits of this proven system.
Knox-Boxes are constructed of ¼” solid steel with a ½” steel door and a reinforced locking mechanism. They are UL tested and listed against physical attack including drill, pick and pull resistance.
The master key to open the Knox-Box is held ONLY by the Five Points Fire Company No. 1. This high security key is strictly controlled, and is produced only by the Medeco factory under direction from an authorized fire official’s signature.
Knox-Boxes are specified by the Five Points Fire Company No. 1, but are purchased directly from the Knox Company. Once installed near the entrance to your property, the fire company locks your building entrance key inside the Knox-Box so that it is available onsite for future emergencies.
If you have any further questions feel free to call the Knox Company at 800-552-5669 or you can visit the Knox website at www.knoxbox.com. Otherwise, please call the firehouse at 302-994-0114, option 2 to obtain an order form and installation instructions.
