Emergency Response Key Box
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.
Lockboxes may be purchased (online via Creditcard or at the Fire Station by personal check) by residents 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 locked key box?
- The 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.
