How to get a Knox Box

A Knox Box is a small vault that is attached to a building and your fire department has the key to open the vault. Keys to the building are placed in the vault and the fire department will then have access to those keys in case of an emergency and there is time to use the keys instead of forcing entry and causing additional damage.

The fire department does not sell the Knox Box, but you can go to to order the vault.  Each vault is keyed to a specific jurisdiction.  Sanford Fire can only access vaults that are for the City of Sanford.  Be wary of purchasing vaults second-hand as they may not be for our City.
