Emergency Lock Boxes for Fire Department Access

Lockboxes are thick, steel boxes mounted to your home or hung from the door. A spare set of your house keys are kept inside. Only the fire department keeps a key to your lockbox. You must go through your local fire department for lockbox purchase and installation instructions. Each fire department has their own instructions. If you are not sure which fire district you live in, call Rural/Metro (520) 219-2060 and they can tell you which district you live in. If purchasing a lockbox from https://www.knoxbox.com/ the starting cost for a lockbox is $160.00. Some districts offer lower cost lock boxes through their fire departments.
