  Original Published: 6/12/2013The Springfield Township Fire Department has four lock boxes to distribute to elderly or handicapped residents. The $170 boxes were purchased by the Ontario Lions Club, and eligible residents are invited to apply to have one installed at their home.  Fire Chief Ron Henry says it's a fire and vandal-proof box that attaches to the top of the front door, and stores the house key. This will give firefighters and EMT's quick access into your home if you are unable to answer the door, without having cause property damage by breaking down the door or going through a window. The master keys to the lock boxes are stored in fire trucks, with each firefighter required to enter a PIN number to get them. Chief Henry hopes to receive more donations to buy more of the lock boxes. If you're interested in having one, call Fire Inspector Mike Mullins at 419-529-4416. And if you're not eligible for a free one, the Springfield Township Fire Department can give you information on where to purchase one.
