Lockboxes For Seniors Program

Every month SAAR, (the Scottsdale Area Association of REALTORS), the Scottsdale Police Department and Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office offer free emergency lockboxes to Seniors in the Scottsdale and Fountain Hills area, whose annual income is less than $25K and to all other seniors with a fee of $25.

The lockbox code is known only to 911 responders including police, firefighters and emergency medical techs. The lockbox allows police or firefighters to gain entry to a home without breaking in if the resident is unable to get to the door.

SAAR purchases the lockboxes and members ride along with the police and assist in filling out paperwork and explaining the program while the officer installs the lockbox.

I learned about this program while attending the SAAR Leadership Academy. I’ve been involved with this program for several years now and it always gives me a good feeling to know that what we do is making a difference in the lives of our senior citizens by giving them a little peace of mind, especially those who live alone.

For more information or to arrange for the delivery of a lockbox please call 1-877-229-5042.
