The Green Valley Fire District and the Green Valley Sheriff’s Auxiliary Volunteers urge you to consider installing your own home safety lockbox. In an emergency such as a fire, a medical trauma, an accidental fall, home attack, or similar situation, a home lockbox enables first responders to retrieve a spare key to your home.
The advantages of a lockbox include the following:
• No forced entry to the house. The fire department will not have to break down the door or a window, both of which can be costly maneuvers. Furthermore, the door will be left open as the agencies attend to your health and safety, leaving your home defenseless.
• Your lockbox information is kept securely in the dispatch center computers, so dispatchers can alert responding crews that you have a key in the box.
• Adds a level of security for many who are living alone and may not be able to answer the door.
