What is a Knox box and how are they used?
Knox boxes are required by local and state fire codes on all commercial buildings with an alarm or sprinkler system. These boxes are attack and tamper resistant and are used to protect inventory, equipment, supplies and records from unnecessary water damage caused by delays in sprinkler shut-off. To find more information please go to Knoxbox.com. Or should you have any questions, please contact the Boulder City Fire Department at 702-293-9228 or fire@bcnv.org.
