Knox Program

The Hamilton Fire Department has implemented a Knox Rapid Entry System in the Village Of Hamilton. The key boxes are purchased  and installed by the building owner, but access is limited  to the fire department only. This system  enables the Fire Department to gain immediate access to buildings during an alarm without awaiting the arrival of a property keyholder, while at the same time maintaining a high level of security for the building. Knox keys are kept securely locked in key secure units on HFD vehicles and only released with a PIN code when building access is required. 

Boxes must be purchased via the website using the Hamilton zip code of 13346 for proper department identification. For more information on Knox products,or to place an order, please visit the Knox website at:     


For questions regarding installation or to have a box accessed to maintain current keys, contact us by email at or by phone at (315) 824-2460.
