Residential Entry System for AAFD

A Knox HomeBox enables firefighters rapid entry to your home without damage if you're not home or unable to open the door.  Knox HomeBox is a key safe mounted outside that can be unlocked only by the fire department.  This is a voluntary alternative to forced entry, delayed entry or no entry when the fire department is called to your home for a medical emegency or fire alarm activation.
