The Burleson Fire Marshal's Office encourages, and in some instances requires, the use of a KNOX-BOX for local homeowners and businesses. This system provides the quickest and most secure method of access to your property or building during an emergency.
How It Works
It's 2 a.m. The fire alarm in your building is ringing and the fire department responds. Rather than forcing entry through the door, fire fighters open the KNOX-BOX, remove the entrance keys, and immediately enter your facility to search for the cause of the alarm.
Eliminating forced entry means no property damage and no replacement costs for broken windows and forced doorframes or locks. It also means no flying glass to injure fire firefighters.
