Residential Knox Box Program

The Hales Corners Fire Department (HCFD) is proud to introduce a new program for the residents of Hales Corners.  The Temporary Residential KNOX-BOX Loan Program provides a secured means of access in case of an emergency. KNOX-BOXES are safe, secure and UL tested.

What happens during an emergency when you can’t come to the door due to a medical or physical aliment?    The HCFD has a limited number of residential KNOX-BOXES to be loaned out to our residents in need.  With a residential KNOX-BOX in place, the fire department will be able to let ourselves in if you are having a medical emergency.  The fire department gains entry into this KNOX-BOX with a master key retained in a high security vault.

The residential KNOX-BOXES are designed to be installed over the top of a resident’s front entry door.  When installed, an extra key for the front door (provided by the resident) is inserted into the KNOX-BOX.  The HCFD will then secure the KNOX-BOX with a unique key.  Only the HCFD has this key.  If an emergency arises, the responding crews are able to access your key in the KNOX-BOX and enter the house without forcing entry or waiting for a key holder.


To be eligible for this program, an applicant must:

  • Be a resident of Hales Corners
  • Live in a one or two-family residential building
  • Be age 55 or older or have a medical disability or special needs

If you are interested in applying for the program or for information,  please contact Chief Pete Jaskulski at 414-529-6168.
