Martha’s daughter, who lives out of town, decided after much research that the Secure-A-Key system was right for them both. Martha, who uses a life alert system, stated ” I feel so much better having this lockbox on my home because now if I fall, paramedics can get to me quickly and not break my door”.

When Joan Long didn’t answer her locked front door just minutes after arranging to be picked up for an outing, her friend suspected something was terribly wrong. She dialed 911 "I had passed out and could not answer the door," recalls the retired clerical worker. " My friend called the ambulance, and they couldn't get in. They broke through the door and frame- smashed the whole thing. I had to get a whole new door" says Long, 69. That experience and her medical issues were factors in Long's decision to move out of her condominium into senior housing. But a community lockbox program, like Secure-A-Key, which are popping up all over the country might have helped her feel more comfortable living alone in her condominium. The lockbox program allows emergency personnel to enter quickly a house with a homeowner's key kept in a secure steel box.
"This is a good idea for anyone." says Steven P. Westermann, president of the International Association of Fire Chiefs. “It gives quick access without destroying property.” Donald and Carol Littlefield, both in their 70's, say the program gives them peace of mind. "I frequently travel and leave my husband at home," says Carol Littlefield. "We've never had to use the lockbox, but just knowing it's there gives me comfort. If something goes wrong, I have a tremendous sense of relief."
Residential lockbox programs are surprisingly easy to start and not expensive to maintain. To find out more about a program in your community, residents or family members can contact Secure-A-Key at 937-408-8761 or 937-925-5386 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
