PASCO COUNTY, FL - Pasco County Community Risk Reduction team recently partnered with Senior Services and Pasco County Community Development to provide Knox Rapid Access Systems to 20 at-risk seniors throughout Pasco County. “Knox Boxes” are small, wall-mounted safes that hold building keys for fire departments and emergency medical services to retrieve in emergencies.

The Knox boxes were provided to the seniors at no cost through a Community Development Block Grant and installed by Pasco County Fire Rescue.

Pasco County Fire Rescue is committed to assisting seniors in our community any way that we can! To learn more about the Pasco County Fire Rescue residential Knox Box program, visit
