What is a Knox Box?
A Knox Box is an entry system that allows the Everett Fire Department to gain entry to your property in the event of an emergency. The components of a Knox Box include a UL-listed steel access box (or other access devices) with a UL-listed steel lid, lock, and key controlled only by the Everett Fire Department. Knox Boxes may be ordered from the Knox Company.
