KNOX BOX ENTRY SYSTEM AVAILABLE IN THE MVFC FIRE DISTRICT
Friday, May 13, 2022

THE KNOX BOX SYSTEM IS AVAILABLE IN THE MILLVILLE FIRE DISTRICT. 

The Millville Volunteer Fire Company fully endorses the use of the Knox-Box rapid entry system. 

All too often we are confronted with the decision of waiting for a key holder to arrive, or forcefully break into a building. Remember, many homes in our area are seasonal and the key-holders can be untold hours away.  Most commercial buildings are very secure and have very few windows to allow us to see inside.  If the decision is made to use forcible entry, this will cost you hundreds of dollars in damages.  The Knox-Box rapid entry system allows us to immediately gain entry to your home or business without delay (using your key) and causing no damage.

If you have a fire alarm or sprinkler system installed, the Knox-Box rapid entry system should be a high priority.  Why pay a large sum of money for an early fire detection system and then have the fire department with no way to enter the building?  Even if you have no fire alarm system, we respond to many alarms turned in by concerned citizens, power surges, or alarms caused during lightning strikes.  Often there is no one in your residence or business to allow the fire department entry, and then the fire department must gain entry by force.

Knox Boxes are also an excellent idea in the event of a medical emergency where a concern exist that the patient or potential patient cannot reach the door to open it for first responders.  The Knox Box system provides the home owner the peace of mind that emergency personnel will be able to gain access to them is a timely manner.
