With the aim of making a difference in the lives of those we serve and also assisting during responses to some of our most at-risk citizens, Poudre Fire Authority has launched a new program for private residences within Poudre Fire Authority’s 235-square-mile response area. 

The new Knox HomeBox program is designed to allow firefighters to more quickly gain access to a private home in the event of an emergency. 

Knox HomeBoxes are small, heavy-duty and locked boxes that can be affixed to a standard residential door. Only firefighters can get into the boxes to access a key to the home, which prevents potential damage to the door upon entry.

To be part of the program, residents may order any model Knox HomeBox at Order information will automatically go to Poudre Fire Authority to register the HomeBox in our system to ensure firefighters have access. 

Poudre Fire Authority is also loaning a certain number of Knox HomeBoxes to those who have an immediate need; for those who need financial assistance, the loan deposit can be waived. 

Who’s best served by this program? 

• Older adults. 

• Those with an ongoing condition who have previously needed help from emergency responders. 

• People recovering from surgery.
