Lock Box Program
What is the Lock Box Program?
This nationwide program is used by fire and police departments so that in the event of an emergency, emergency personnel may access the key to your residence via a secured key box mounted outside your residence.
Why is it Important? 
The Lock Box program provides public safety responders with a way to gain access to the homes of participating residents to expedite access during medical or other emergencies. This program protects the resident's property from being damaged in cases where forced entry would otherwise be necessary. 

Who is Eligible to Participate? 
A person who is elderly, disabled, or has some other demonstrated need that requires specialized or unique medical or other assistance when public safety responds to the residence.
Is it Secure? 
The key is placed immediately in the lock box and the combination set. The combination to the lock box is maintained in our Communications Unit and will not be given out or utilized for any other reason but for a medical emergency at the residence, or when a no-response situation occurs after a welfare concern has arisen. Once the lock box has been opened for either of these reasons, the combination will be changed and updated in the Communications Unit until the next time it is needed. At no time will the lock box participant be given the combination to the lock box.
