The Knox-Box® Rapid Entry System is a secure emergency access program developed for property owners and first responders. First Responders across North America use the Knox-Box Rapid Entry System to prevent costly entry damage while protecting property and lives. When a fire breaks out or there is a medical emergency, Knox® products allow immediate entry into buildings and property without forced entry damage or delay. Property owners store entrance keys, access cards and floor plans in high-security Knox-Box key boxes mounted near building entrances. Each Knox-Box purchased by a property owner is keyed to a single master key controlled by Normal Fire Department.
In the Town of Normal, if you have an automatic fire alarm system or a sprinkler system installed in your property, you are required to install a Knox Box.
Additionally, if you have a family member who lives alone, or someone who is frequent to falls or other medical emergencies, you may consider installing a residential Knox Box so our paramedics can easily gain entry to the house without causing damage to doors or windows. Visit KnoxBox.com
