If your total household income is $28,000 a year or less, the lockbox and smoke detectors are free. If you make over the income qualification, the cost of the lockbox is $25 and the cost of the smoke detectors would be about $13 each.
A lockbox is a small metal box that is used to store items such as a house key and important medical information about the homeowner. The Berea Police and Fire Divisions will keep a master key that can open all the lockboxes in Berea.

The purpose of this program is to install smoke detectors in homes that do not currently have them. If you feel as though your smoke detectors may need new batteries, the Fire Division can test them for you and replace batteries if needed.
