Senior Citizen Lock Box Program
The safety of Elgin's senior citizens and
their access to emergency assistance is important. This is why the Elgin
Fire Department sponsors the “Senior Residential Lock Box Program."
This lock box is installed outside the home near the front door, or hung
over the front door. Once installed, the fire department assists the
homeowner with locking a spare key inside the lock box to assist
emergency responders with entrance in the case of an emergency. To
obtain a lock box, contact the Fire Prevention Bureau at the
form and waiver. The SupraSafe lock box prices start at $79.
the order is received the box is then shipped to the homeowner; the
homeowner is responsible for installation. Once installed, the homeowner
notifies the Fire Prevention Bureau, at which time personnel will
schedule a visit to assist with securing the homeowner’s spare key in
the lock box. The Suprasafe lock boxes are keyed specifically for the
Elgin Fire Department; therefore, only fire personnel can open the lock
box. Elgin's dispatchers will have a record of the lock box placement
and inform emergency responders.
