Cold Lake Fire Dept. Introduces Lock Box Program

Firefighters in Cold Lake will soon have another helpful tool in the city’s new lock box program.

The lock box would be located at the front entrance of a building and be locked with a key only the fire department has. A key to the building is kept in inside.This way crews don’t waste  precious minutes waiting for someone with a key to drive over. This is ideal for smaller emergencies that don’t necessarily justify kicking the door in, such as a water leak or a small fire that isn’t threatening to engulf the entire building in flames.

Buildings that aren’t staffed 24/7, such as schools, apartments and some businesses apply for the program. The program isn’t necessary at for example, a hospital where someone with a pair of keys is always on hand.

anyone who believes they may be eligible for a lock box can contact Norm Hollis at the Fire Station at 780-594-4494 ex. 8045.
