Knox Box

The Knox System allows firefighters immediate access to locked buildings, storage rooms, elevators, and other secured areas without causing property damage from forced entry procedures.

The Knox-Box is purchased by the property owner and mounted near the building entrance. The box contains keys, electronic access cards, floor plans, Haz-Mat data and other vital building information firefighters will need when responding to an alarm. Firefighters securely control the master key that allows them immediate access to handle any emergency at any time.

In order to secure the emergency access of properties, the fire department encourages business owners to purchase Knox Rapid Entry system products. This will provide access during non-business hours in the event of an emergency.




An application can be obtained at the Public Safety Operations and Training Center, Fire Administration Office at 3500 D.B. Wood Rd. or call (512) 930-FIRE (3473) for any additional questions, including pricing. Office hours are Monday – Friday 8:00 am -5:00 pm.

**Please note only cash or check are accepted for Knox Box purchases.**
