Emergency Residential Key Lockbox
Emergency key lockboxes can be installed on the outside of a residence to allow first responders more rapid and less destructive entry to a home during a medical emergency. The box is mounted near the outside main entrance to a residence. With the assistance of the fire district, a key to the resident's door is secured inside the box. Emergency responders from the fire district and police department have a master key that unlocks the box. In the event of a medical emergency, first responders can access the resident's key secured in the box to allow them access to the home more quickly and without having to break through a door or window. These boxes can be ordered online through Kidde or Knox . Please consult the fire district at 630-668-4836 regarding placement of your lockbox and to schedule a time to secure the key inside the box. A fire district employee MUST be present when the resident's key is secured in the box.
