The La Grange Fire
Departments have partnered with the local Aging Well Community Action Team in establishing a new lock box program, ideal for senior citizens or for residents with special needs requirements, especially those who can’t get to the door easily.
The Knox Box is a 4x5 safe-like device (lock box) designed to either hang from an entrance door or attach to the outside of a home. A key to the home is kept inside the box. Instead of using forcible entry to enter your home in an emergency, the La Grange Fire Department would have key access to the box; thus paramedics could enter your home without doing any damage.
This program could save lives and offer a sense of security to our senior citizens and to those in need of assistance.
