Knox Boxes are available for property owners in the Cashtown Community Fire Department response area. We strongly encourage all businesses to consider installing a Knox Box in addition to any elderly or physically disabled residents who might have trouble getting to the door in the event of an emergency.

The Knox Box Rapid Entry System is a secure emergency access program developed for property owners and first responders. First Responders across North America use the Knox Box Rapid Entry System to prevent costly entry damage while protecting property and lives. When a fire breaks out or there is a medical emergency, Knox products allow immediate entry into buildings and property without forced entry damage or delay. Property owners store entrance keys, access cards and floor plans in high-security Knox Box key boxes mounted near building entrances. Each Knox Box purchased by a property owner is keyed to a single master key controlled by the local responding fire department.

In addition to key boxes and vaults, Knox padlocks and key switches operate with the same master key. There are so many gated communities today that fire and police departments are delayed when responding to emergency calls. Increased property damage and even total loss is a threat when property is not accessible. The Knox Rapid Entry System was developed to save property and lives.

Orders may be placed online at When visiting the Knox website click "Buy" in the upper right corner of the home page and then enter "Cashtown" in the search box that is provided. Paper order forms are also available and can be obtained by contacting us.
