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.
There is a $207.00 fee for the Knox Product "lockup" per address. The check is to be made out to "The City Treasurer".
Do not send the City Treasurer the check for the parts you are ordering from Knox.
The information which must be included on the Knox Box Application (PDF) is: the applicant's name and the business name, as well as the Installation/Inspection job site address. You must include an e-mail address. Indicate whether this is a Knox Box install or Knox Key Switch install. Sign and date the application.
In the Knox Authorization Order Form (PDF), fill out Sections 1, 4, 5, and 6.
Send both completed forms plus the $207.00 check by U.S. Mail to:
San Diego Fire Rescue Department
