Knox Box Program

The Knox Box Program provides the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department with a quick and easy means to access a secured building or area. It also minimizes potential costly repairs caused by forcible entry and allows the building to be re-secured quickly and easily. When access is difficult for emergency responders, the Chief is authorized to require a Knox Box or Key Switch to be installed in an acceptable location.

The information which must be included on the application form is:

  • the applicant's name, business name, address, phone number and e-mail
  • the installation/inspection job site address, cell phone number and business site name
  • contact person on site
  • indicate whether this is a Knox Box installation or Knox Key Switch installation
  • sign and date the application.
  • There is a $207.00 fee for the Knox Product "lockup" per address. The check is to be made out to "City Treasurer"
