Knox Rapid Entry System

Knox Logo

The Knox Rapid Entry System allows Piedmont Fire personnel entry access to your residence and buildings in the event of an emergency. With the Knox System there is no forcing gates and doors open or breaking windows to gain entry. The Knox Rapid Entry System reduces response time, property damage and the liability for lost keys.

Property owners in Piedmont can store entry keys, access cards and floor plans in high-security KnoxBoxes mounted near their home entrances. Each KnoxBox purchased by the home owner is keyed to a single Knox master key controlled by the Piedmont Fire Department.

To participate, go to the Knox website and select a residential product. Follow the instructions provided in the process to notify the Piedmont Fire Department and we will be contacted electronically. Once the department has approved your request your purchase will be processed.

After your KnoxBox has been installed, call us at (510) 420-3030 to request Piedmont Fire  to secure the contents of your box for use in the future.  If you ever need to access your KnoxBox to update it's contents, give us a call and we'd be happy to schedule a time to come out and open it for you.
