In a medical or fire emergency, it is necessary for Genoa Township Fire Department personnel to gain immediate entry into homes to provide life-saving services. To avoid the need for emergency responders to force entry, residents are urged to purchase a locked key box.
Genoa Township Fire Department has partnered with the Roper Lock Box, LLC to give emergency responders the access they need without the security risks of hiding a key outside. The Roper Over-The-Door Key Box is installed simply without the need for tools. A key to the property is secured inside the box accessible only to emergency responders.
Lock boxes may be purchased by residents for $30.95 at the Fire Station located at 7049 Big Walnut Road. Please bring a spare house key when you go to purchase the lock box in order for staff to secure the key to the property inside.
Why install a lock box?
- Caller cannot physically get to the door to allow emergency responders to enter.
- A monitored fire alarm system is activated while the property owner is away.
- The property is inadvertently locked with the keys inside.
