22 Apr Did You Know? Residential Knox-box
A prudent thing to consider is how the fire department or EMS will be able to enter your home if you need them and are unable to go to the door. The Residential Knox-Box (www.knoxbox.com) is a high-security key safe designed for single-family homes that only local emergency responders can access. The benefits include a one-time purchase, no monthly monitoring fee, your key is locked in the Knox-Box (not hidden for a burglar to find), does not require neighbors to be home to let responders in and doors and windows are not damaged by responders trying to access your home. On the second Tuesday of each month, staff at Fearrington Cares helps residents learn about the Knox Box and order one if they choose. No need to register, just come to the Center at 1 p.m.
