Ten reasons to Install a Knox-Box.

Knox-Box Program

Offering Peace of Mind for the Community and Firefighters

The goal of the Safety First Volunteer Fire Company 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/residences has become unmanageable and is causing delays when responding to emergencies.

In order to access buildings quickly, minimize forced entry damage, and protect firefighters from injury, the Safety First Volunteer Fire Company has adopted the Knox-Box Rapid Entry System. Currently, more than 11,000 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 reinforced locking mechanism. They are UL listed against physical attack and Knox Company security lock is patented and UL listed for drill, pick and pull resistance.

The master key to open the Knox-Box is held ONLY by the Safety First Volunteer Fire Company. This high security key is strictly controlled and is produced ONLY by the Knox Company under direction from an authorized fire official's signature.

Knox-Boxes are specified by the Safety First Volunteer Fire Company 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 on site 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 Otherwise, please call the Safety First Volunteer Fire Company at 610-250-9231 to obtain an order form and installation instructions.
