FPAM's 500th Meeting
That can be very difficult and costly for property owners and installing contractors, especially if you try to do it retroactively. The best solution is to put a key box system in place in your community. Knox Box is one vendor of these systems. That way all the keys for access as well as systems are available for each site. There are several options such as one key for the FD and another key for the PD however the FD key is a code compliant option at the FD's discretion whereas the PD option is at the property owners discretion. Because the key box option is in the building and fire code it can be implemented at any time.
Thank you Robert, We have Knox boxes also, I guess it is more of a convenience issue.
