During an emergency, the Fire Safety Box program assists fire crews at times when buildings are closed or when information about the structure is not readily available. Through the program, Firefighters can obtain access to closed buildings through the exterior key lockbox.
The Fire Safety Box must be mounted on a wall at specified heights and distances from a principal entrance. Contact your fire safety provider to inquire about a Fire Safety Box for your building. A number of local suppliers should also stock Fire Safety Boxes.
For more information about Fire Safety Boxes, call the Calgary Fire Inspections and Investigations at 311 (from within Calgary) or 403-268-2489 (from outside Calgary).
