Knox-Box Program

Residential Knox-Box Rapid Entry Program

Residential Knox-Boxes are installed over the top of a home’s front entry door and hold one key (provided by the resident) that allows Fire Department personnel easy and rapid entry into the residence. Only the Henderson Fire Department can access the Knox-Box with a key that is securely located in the fire engine. If an emergency arises, the responding crews are able to access the Knox-Box and retrieve the house key without having to force entry or wait for a key holder to arrive.

The Residential Knox-Box is ideal for individuals:

  • With a history of medical problems
  • Who frequently travel
  • Are recuperating from a hospital stay
  • Live alone
  • Using an electronic calling/medical alert service

This residential box program enhances the department’s response times and reduces forced entry damage while protecting property and lives.
