Knox-Box Program

 

The Knox-Box is a secure rapid entry system developed for property owners and fire departments. When there is a medical emergency, when a fire breaks out, or even when there is a false alarm that the Waynesboro Fire Department must investigate, the Knox-Box allows immediate entry into buildings and property without forcible entry damage or delay. Lost time getting needed medical treatment and increased property damage, even total loss, are threats when property is not accessible. With Knox-Box, owners store entrance keys in a high-security container mounted in a known location. Each box within the Waynesboro Fire Department’s district is keyed to a single master key controlled by on-duty career appartus operators (Borough of Waynesboro Employees).

 
IF YOU TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS SPECIAL OFFER, THE WAYNESBORO FIRE DEPARTMENT WILL:

  • Deliver, install & register your Knox-Box

  • Insert your keys and lock the box to insure operation

  • Pre-plan your property, this plan records vital physical information about your property and allows us to plan our response.

  • Annual maintenance

Peace of mind

 2012 International Fire Code (IFC) requires Key Boxes meet UL 1037 Attack Standard,SECTION 506 – Key Boxes

“IFC 506.1 When required. “Where access to or within a structure or an area is restricted because of secured openings or where immediate access is necessary for life-saving of fire-fighting purposes, the fire code official is authorized to require a key box to be installed in an accessible location. The key box shall be of an approved type listed in accordance with UL 1037, and shall contain keys to gain access as required by the code official.
