Fire officials ask for KNOX-BOXES updates

SYCAMORE – The Sycamore Fire Department is requesting any business or residential property owner with a KNOX-BOX to check it for current keys or security codes.

A KNOX-BOX is a UL-listed, secure key box mounted on the exterior of many commercial and residential structures in the city and fire district. A KNOX-BOX contains keys provided by the owner or occupant that allow the fire department access to all locked areas of a building, eliminating potentially costly delays when it responds to a call for service.

Over time, business owners or occupants with a KNOX-BOX may have changed the entry door keys or alarm panel codes, and neglected to update those keys or codes in the box. Fire department officials ask users to occupancies that have KNOX-BOXES to check if any changes have been made since the KNOX-BOX was installed.

If the keys are current, no action is required. However, if the owner/occupant is unsure, contact Assistant Fire Chief Art Zern at 815-895-4514 to schedule a visit to check the keys in the KNOX-BOX.
