The East Dundee Fire District includes an emergency key access requirement. According to the 2021 International Fire Code (IFC) that the East Dundee Fire District adopted in 2021, 506.1 Where required. Where access to or within a structure or an area is restricted because of secured openings or where immediate access is necessary for life-saving or firefighting purposes, the fire code official is authorized to require a key box to be installed in an approved location. The key box shall be of an approved type listed in accordance with UL 1037, and shall contain keys to gain necessary access as required by the fire code official.
Specifically, according to the East Dundee Fire District Fire Code, “The owner of any building or structure that is not a single-family or two-family dwelling and that is protected by an automatic sprinkler system, an automated fire detection system shall purchase, install and maintain a Knox Box brand key access system found at https://www.knoxbox.com/Products/Commercial-KnoxBoxes
Residential Knox Box Loaner Program:
The residential Knox Box loaner program is designed for residents with any condition which would prevent them from answering their door. Residential Knox Boxes are secured key boxes designed to provide responding firefighters and paramedics immediate access to entry keys for a residence. In an emergency where a resident cannot come to the door, the Knox Box system allows firefighters and paramedics access to your home without waiting for a key holder to arrive from another location or forcing or breaking a door or window.
Any resident with a valid address within the East Dundee Fire District is qualified at no cost.
