The Knox Rapid Entry System was developed to save lives and property.
In order to provide a faster and more secure service to our community, the Southborough Fire Department has adopted the Knox-Box® Rapid Entry System. The Knox-Box® Rapid Entry System is a secure emergency access program developed for property owners and fire departments. 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-Boxes mounted near building entrances. Each Knox-Box purchased by a property owner is keyed to a single master key controlled by the Southborough Fire Department only.
Knox-Box choices are specified by the Southborough Fire Department but are purchased directly from the Knox Company. Once installed near the entrance to your property, the fire department locks your building entrance key inside the Knox-Box so that it is available onsite 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. Otherwise, please call the Southborough Fire Department at 508-485-3235 and speak with our Fire Prevention Officer, Lt. Christian Dano.
