The residential lock box allows first responders when requested for a fire, medical, or police emergency to gain entry to a home when occupants are unable to answer the door or not home. The purpose is to eliminate any unnecessary damage to any doors or windows in gaining access. When a lock box is installed, the homeowner provides a copy of their household key which is secured in their lock box by the Fire Department; only Fire Department and Police Department personnel will have access to the secured, coded key to open residential located lock boxes.
Citizens can contact/apply for a Lock Box by visiting the City’s Senior Services Dept. at 1827 N Squirrel RD, or by obtaining an application here to send into the Senior Services Dept., or by contacting the Seniors Services Dept. by phone at (248) 370-9353.
