[ARCHIVED] Knox Box for your Home

knox homebox sm.jpg

In an emergency, every second counts. The City is expanding its lock box program to residential properties. Firefighters will be able to get into a home using a key, rather than forcing entry through a door or window.

The City of Roseville requires buildings with fire alarm systems, automatic sprinkler systems or other extinguishing systems to have a key box. Multi-family buildings with secured or restricted entry, large 1- and 2-story buildings, and large complexes with multiple entries are required to have multiple key boxes called Knox Boxes.

Knox Boxes give firefighters quicker access into a building in an emergency.

The Roseville Fire Department now has Knox Homeboxes available for sale to Roseville residents. They anticipate using this primarily during medical emergencies. The boxes cost $200 each, and a firefighter will work with the family to correctly install the box and insert a key that can only be accessed in an emergency.

If you are interested in purchasing a Knox Homebox, contact the Fire Department at or call 651-792-7340. Once an order is placed a fire inspector will schedule an appointment to come out to your home to install the box.
