Residential Knox Box
The Live Oak Fire Department is promoting the Knox Box for residential use.
Anyone who is concerned about not being able to escape your home in an emergency or not being able to get to the door during an emergency to let paramedics or firefighters in is encouraged to consider a Knox Box for their home. This solid steel box is mounted on the outside of your home within close proximity to the main entry door and secures your individual key to allow access into your home. Only the fire department has a key to open this box and this will allow them to gain entry into your home during an emergency without causing any damage to your home.
You can come by the Live Oak Fire Station at the Development Services window to pick up an application or call 210-653-9140 ext. 241 or 243 if you have questions. We also have samples of residential and Commercial Know Boxes at this location.
