Avon Seniors Inc. and the Avon Fire Department have announced a joint program offering lock boxes to residents. A lock box eliminates the need for a resident to hide a key outside the home or to give the key to a neighbor. Emergency personnel need not break down doors or windows to enter your home in the case of an emergency. This program is not just for seniors, but can benefit anyone who has a physical limitation or who lives alone and may not be able to get to the door in an emergency. More detailed information or arrangements to request a lock box may be made through the Avon Seniors Inc. at any of their meetings or by calling Bob Fedor at 937-6815. You can also call the Avon Fire Department at 934-1222 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
