The Knox Box Rapid Entry System is a secure emergency
access program developed for property owners and fire departments. When a
fire breaks out or there is a medical emergency, the Knox System
provides immediate entry into buildings, storage rooms, and other
secured property without causing forced entry damage or delay.
Each Knox Box is keyed to a single master key controlled by
the fire department who will install the keys in each box.
Per California Fire Code 506, the City of Morro Bay may require commercial property owners to store entrance keys, access cards, floor plans, and Haz-Mat data in high-security Knox-Boxes mounted near building entrances.
For community members with medical or mobility difficulties ask about the RUOK Program in which the Fire Department loans a temporary door mounted Knox unit to individuals. The unit causes no damage to the door and provides quick access to the residence for emergency personnel when necessary.
If you are interested in installing a Knox Box at your business or residence in Morro Bay, please contact the Morro Bay Fire Department at 805-772-6242 to request an order form. For additional product information visit the Knox-Box website.
