LFD offers Knox Box Entry System in case of an emergency

LEWISTON, ID - In the event of an emergency, having a secure lock box for the Lewiston Fire Department to get in, could be key.

The Knox Box Entry System is a high-security key safe that only local emergency responders can access. This box would not only speed up the process of getting help, but could also save you money in the long run.

"It's a really good idea for an elderly person who maybe lives by themselves," said Lewiston Fire Dept. Fire Marshal, Linda Steputat. "If something happens and we need to get into the house to help them. We can get in much more easily than trying to jimmy a door or possibly having to break a window."

If you'd like to get a Knox Box for yourself or someone you know, you can pick up a form at the Lewiston Fire Department.
