Property owners in Jefferson Township are encouraged to store entrance keys, access cards and floor plans in high-security Knox-Box key boxes mounted near your building entrances. Each Knox-Box purchased is keyed to a single master key controlled by your fire department. With the Knox System, there is no cost to the fire department, no waiting for a property owner to unlock the door in the middle of the night, and no forcing the door open to gain entry. The Knox Rapid Entry System reduces response time, property damage and liability for lost keys.
Calls for fire alarms, gas leaks, smoke, lightning strikes and the like can all be investigated safely and securely without the need for a business to incur personnel costs to staff a building around the clock or repair damage from forced entry.
If you have a question about Knox Boxes or would like the Fire Department to assess whether your home or business would benefit from one, contact the Jefferson township Fire Prevention Bureau at 614-588-5880.
