Goodyear Fire Department Begins Residential Lock Box Program

(Goodyear, AZ) The Goodyear Fire Department is pleased to announce the launch of our new Residential Lock Box Program for all citizens in Goodyear.  This voluntary program is designed to allow emergency access to homes during medical or other emergencies where the occupant is unable to open the door on their own.  This program will also assist in reducing the likelihood of property damage caused by firefighters as they make emergency access to the home.  This residential program is very similar to the commercial lock box program currently in place for all businesses located within the City of Goodyear.

Each homeowner that wishes to participate in the program can purchase a combination style lock box from either a local home improvement store or online. Once the homeowner has purchased a combination-style lock box they can either chose to install it themselves, or have it installed by a contractor of their choice.  Once installed the homeowner will place a key(s) into the lock box then complete the liability release form available on the fire department's website listed below.  Along with the release form, the homeowner will also find a general overview form that provides more details of the lock box program such as the ideal location for installation.  When completed, this program will provide all responding firefighters the combination to each of the lock boxes located at individual addresses that have chosen to participate in the program.

For more information about this new program, please visit the Goodyear Fire Department website at:

Then just click on Residential Lock Box Release Form to download the release and program information forms.

Residents may also contact the Goodyear Fire Department at 623-932-2300 for questions regarding this new program and how to register their lock box information.
