How does a Knox-Box Work?

The residential Knox-Boxes purchased for this program is designed to be installed over top a resident’s front entry door. When installed, an extra key for the front door (provided by the resident) is inserted into the Knox-Box. The Fire Department will then secure the Knox-Box with a unique key. Only the Beavercreek Township Fire Department has this key, and it is securely located in the Department’s fire and medical apparatus. If an emergency arises, the responding crews are notified of the presence of the Knox-Box and are then provided permission to use the key.
