Shelby Township Fire Department

 The Knox Rapid Entry system is a secure emergency access program developed for property owners and fire departments. When a fire breaks out, or there is any emergency, the Knox Box Rapid Entry System allows firefighters and paramedics immediate entry into buildings and property without forced entry, damage or delay. Each Knox Box purchased by a property owner is keyed to a master key controlled by the Fire Department.

Commercial Property
The Shelby Township Fire Department requires a locking Knox key box on all commercial buildings as defined by the Fire Code Official, or where immediate access is necessary for life-saving or fire fighting purposes per the 2015 International Fire Protection District, Section 506.1 as amended.
