Knox Box Program


The East Whiteland Fire Company encourages the use of a KNOX-BOX for our local homeowners and businesses.  This system provides the quickest and most secure method of access to your property or building during an emergency. There are many establishments in the East Whiteland/Charlestown area that already participate in the program.


How It Works

A Knox Box is an access control system that will allow Fire or Ambulance personnel to gain access without damaging doors or locks.  The Knox Box can not be unlocked without a master key, which the East Whiteland Fire Company carries on our trucks.  When the personnel on site notice you have a Knox Box they will contact the Chester County Dispatch Center and request for the key in the truck to be unlocked.  Chester County will log the request in their comptuter to send an electronic signal to the truck which will allow the master key to be released from its locking device.  The master key will then be used to unlock your Knox Box to obtain the key that unlocks your residence or business.  Once the personnel on site are done with the master key it will be returned to the truck and returned to its locking device.

Questions and Answers

1.) What is a KNOX BOX system?

It's a high-security box system, designed to give firefighters and emergency services immediate access to locked buildings, elevators, and other secured areas.

2.) Why install a KNOX BOX?

Installation of a KNOX BOX on your property will not only allow firefighters faster access in case of an emergency, but will also prevent expensive forcible entry should emergency services be required while the premises are unoccupied. Costly front doors and entry ways needn't be harmed if entry keys are available on-site!

3.) How does the KNOX BOX system work?

Following your purchase of a KNOX BOX from the factory, you will mount it securely on the exterior of your building; attractive recessed-mount models are available. All necessary access keys will be locked inside by a representative of the fire department; only the fire department's master key can open the box.

The KNOX BOX gives the fire department a simple alternative to expensive, time-consuming forcible entry. The generous interior capacity allows you to store everything emergency personnel may require--keys, floor plans, electronic entry cards, and more--in complete security until needed.

4.) How secure is a KNOX BOX system?

Security has always been a KNOX strong point. Designed for maximum protection, each virtually indestructible box features a special high-security Medeco lock and key. This Medeco restricted locking system guards against unauthorized key duplication. Keys aren't even available to locksmiths or lock distributors--only The KNOX Company can supply these keys!

The Knox Box system offers maximum security at every step. The department has an exclusive key code. All Knox Box stations in that city are keyed alike--and only the fire department has master keys.

5.) Who can authorize a KNOX BOX system?

Strict security control is maintained by allowing only fire departments to authorize the purchase of each Knox Box. This is achieved by using a special authorization form which you can obtain only from your fire department; the form must be signed by a fire department official whose signature is on file at the factory. After verifying the signature, the Knox box is shipped directly to you. Each Knox Box is shipped without keys, locked in an open position and ready for mounting.

6.) How is a KNOX BOX installed?

Each KNOX BOX is shipped with complete mounting instructions; however, your fire department will assist you in choosing a proper location for mounting. After installation is completed, the fire department will conduct an inspection of the installation and lock building keys inside the box. As soon as building keys are locked inside the box, it is ready to provide immediate access to emergency personnel-- 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
