Should emergency contact information be updated periodically?

Yes. Business and emergency contact information should be updated regularly so the building department and dispatch center have the correct contact information to contact the business or building owner in the event of an emergency. Proper and current emergency contact information can eliminate the need for emergency service personnel to forcibly enter businesses and buildings if a key holder is promptly notified. This also includes keeping all Knox boxes updated as well if installed.
