Knox Security Rapid Access Products

Travis County Emergency Services District No. 3 / Oak Hill Fire Department participates in a program called “KnoxBox”, that provides us with immediate access to properties and buildings 24 hours a day, without a security risk. The Knox Rapid Entry System for emergency access eliminates wasted time and confusion; firefighters have immediate access to your property or building where and when it’s needed.

Important reasons to install a KNOX-BOX:
Eliminate needless forced entry damage that may not be covered by your insurance deductible
Assure immediate building entry by firefighters without delay or waiting for building keys
Satisfy local fire codes and emergency access ordinances
Save time and aggravation by not having to drive to your property or building for a false alarm
Feel secure about emergency coverage when your building is left unattended. The fire department holds the only key to the KNOX-BOX
Depend on the highest lock box security available with attack-resistant, UL-tested reliability.

To purchase Knox Products, simply go online here to order Knox boxes, gate switches, and padlocks.
*NOTE: You must use “Travis Co ESD #3/Oak Hill Fire Dept” as the department name when selecting and ordering your products online. Use of any other department name may result in items being shipped with incorrect approvals and keyways, making your products inaccessible to the Fire Department.
