Fire Department Connections (FDCs) are the access point for firefighters to supplement a building’s fire sprinkler system during a fire. The Fire Department’s ability to protect your building during a fire is threatened when your building’s FDCs are damaged, blocked with debris or missing due to theft. When left unprotected, these openings are prime targets for trash and debris of all kinds. The operation of your fire sprinkler system is threatened when this debris blocks or seriously impedes the water supply or the swivel connection has been stolen. Fire Departments are concerned about open and unprotected FDCs.

Part-time residents often rely on private security agencies to monitor their home while they are away. The Knox Residential Program can be implemented by the agency to provide access to the home in the event of a security alarm. Some security agencies also implement the Knox Residential Program so they can assist in the event of a lockout. Many customers choose this option as an added benefit to their security service. This is safer and more reliable than hiding an unsecure key to the home on-site.
