Marple Township Property Owners:
The KNOX-BOX® solution is a secure rapid entry program specifically developed for fire departments. With one master key, the Broomall Fire Company can gain access to commercial and residential properties located in the Township. More than 6,000 departments nationwide use Knox key boxes and vaults, Haz-Mat cabinets, key switches, and padlocks.
Property owners in Marple Township can store their entrance keys in high-security Knox-Boxes mounted near their building entrances. Each KNOX-BOX purchased by the property owner is keyed to a single master key controlled by the Broomall Fire Company.
With the Knox System, there is no delay in waiting for a property owner to unlock the door in the middle of the night, and no forcing the door open to gain entry. The Knox Rapid Entry System reduces response time and property damage.
