Knox-boxes are specially made devices to assist fire departments with access to gated subdivisions, apartments, communities, commercial properties, and residences. Knox-boxes are attached to easily accessible areas and would contain keys, phone numbers, etc. for the fire department to allow personnel to gain access to rooms or buildings without causing damage. Knox-locks are heavy duty locks that can be used to lock access or remote gate switch boxes.
Only emergency personnel are allowed to carry keys to these devices. The program is administered by the Harris County Fire Marshals Office. For more information, visit their website. To order your Knox-box or Knox-lock, click below.
