Knox Rapid Entry System

A key box, called a "Knox Box," or a padlock is required where access to a structure or an area is difficult or where immediate access is necessary for lifesaving or firefighting purposes. The Knox Box Rapid Entry System is a secure method of providing first responders instant access to your building or property during an emergency. 

Martin County Fire Rescue uses the various Knox key boxes, vaults, padlocks and key switches to allow immediate entry into building and property without forced entry damage or delay.
