Lock Box in Door FrameThe Fire Department, in partnership with the Senior Life Department, began a Safety Lock Box Program in Fairview Park. This program assists safety forces in reaching our senior residents during an emergency. The Fire Department installs a lock box (2″ wide by 4″ long) onto the top of the door jam on the side or back door.  This box holds a master key and emergency information, including the name and phone of the physician, medical conditions, medications, allergies, hospital preference and information on pets, if applicable.

Should you require assistance from emergency personnel and are unable to answer the door, the contents of the safety lock box are available to police, fire, or EMS. This system allows faster emergency response while preventing damage to a home.

Interested senior residents should call the Senior Life Department at 440-356-4437 to arrange installation of a safety lock box.
