Fire Department Access to you Building

It is the goal of the Kansasville Fire Department to give the best service to the people of their fire protection area.  Therefore, the department has instituted the use of the KNOX Rapid Entry System to provide ease-of-access and to streamline operations. The current system of notifying a building key holder and waiting for entrance keys to arrive causes the department unnecessary and often prolonged delays as well as the possibility of having to use force to gain building access in an emergency.

The installation of a high security KNOX-BOX® near the entrance of your building will provide onsite storage of keys, access cards and emergency information.The KNOX-BOX is keyed specifically for the Kansasville Fire Department and would be used only in cases of emergency or to ensure safety of the property.

The Knox Company has been providing the fire departments with the Knox Rapid Entry System for 30 years.  More than 7,500 departments and the communities they serve enjoy the benefits fo the proven system. For more information you can contact the Knox Company by calling their customer service department at 1-800-552-5669 or visiting their web site
