Knox Boxes


Perkins Township supports the use of Knox Boxes on residential and commercial structures. A Knox Box eliminates forced entry which means no property damage and no replacement costs for broken windows and forced door frames or locks. It also means no flying glass to injure firefighters.


A Knox box is a high security box system, designed to give firefighters and emergency services immediate access to locked buildings, elevators, and other secured areas. This Knox Box will be mounted securely on the exterior of a building and will house all necessary keys to the building which is only accessible by the Fire Department who has a master key that opens the box.


Safety Town


The Perkins Township Fire Department hosts a Safety Town event for all incoming kindergarten students to Perkins Schools teaching them about bus safety, water safety, healthy safety, fire safety, and police safety.
