Residential Knox Box

Have you ever wondered how the Fire Department would reach you without causing damage to your property if you could not come to the door due to a medical or physical aliment?  The Residential Knox Box allows the Fire Department access to your home in an emergency while minimizing property damage and clean-up cost from forced entry.

The Residential Knox Box is a high security metallic key safe that is not permanently mounted to your residence. The box is simply installed by sliding the unit over the top of a residential front entry door.  When installed, entry keys for the front door are inserted into the Residential Knox Box and then locked with a secure key that only Bellevue Fire & Rescue personnel have access to.  If an emergency arises, the responding crews are able to access the stored keys in the Knox Box.  This allows the personnel to quickly enter the home and avoid potential delay and damage to your property. 

The Residential Knox Box is ideal for individuals who:

  • Live alone
  • Use an electronic calling or medical alert service
  • Have a history of medical problems

If you are interested in purchasing and installing a Residential Knox Box, please contact Battalion Chief Michael Navin at 920-884-1077 ext. 302 or by email: mnavin@bellevue-fire.com
