Residential lock box program

Fire and Rescue

The Brunswick Division of Fire Rescue is excited to announce the implementation of a residential lock box program. This program is designed to give firefighters and paramedics faster access to our seniors or disabled residents that might experience an emergency when they are unable to get to the door. These boxes reduce the risk of property damage incurred when responders have to force open doors. More importantly it saves time during an emergency which would be wasted attempting to gain access to an immobile patient locked in their residence.

What is a lock box? A lockbox is a small, secure, metal box which is installed on a resident’s door or close to the door, and contains a key to the home. The box is locked by a unique key that can only be accessed by the Brunswick Fire Department. The boxes are very safe and durable. These boxes will only be accessed in the event of an emergency, at no time will the box be accessed by anyone other than emergency responders.

How does the program work? Any resident interested in obtaining a lock box should contact the Brunswick Fire Department at 330-273-8046. There is an application form that will be needed to be filled out and signed by the homeowner. The homeowner will need to bring a key from their home when picking up the box. Special accommodations will be made for those that cannot pick up boxes.

How much does the lock box cost? The boxes can be purchased for $30.
