A Knox HomeBox makes all the difference when Schertz emergency responders need to quickly access an immobilized patient when time is limited. Schertz residents can now purchase to have a Knox HomeBox in their own homes allowing firefighters 24/7 access in the instance an emergency occurs.

Purchase A Knox HomeBox. You can call the Schertz Fire Department at (210) 619-1300 to schedule an installation. Please note, we will ONLY install the door hanger Knox Home Box. 



Schertz Fire Rescue participates in many various events throughout the year.  If you like the Fire Department to make a visit during your event or schedule a tour of the Fire Station please fill out our PR event request form.
