Would we be able to get to you in an emergency?

Thursday 3rd January 2019 – 9.15am – Murray MacGregor.

It’s a conundrum that many of our crews come across on a not irregular basis – which key safe is yours?

There is no doubt that Key Safes are great, especially for family members and carers who are visiting people who are unsteady on their feet or for a number of other reasons can’t easily come to the door.

However, as you can see in the picture, we sometimes get called to apartment complexes where our staff are faced with multiple Key Safes at the front door of the building.

  1. If you have to call us and this is what it looks like outside your front door, please let us know which one is yours!

We understand that you probably don’t want to put a number on it, but perhaps put some other distinguishing mark on the safe so that we can quickly identify the correct one.

In a real emergency, those few seconds saved could make the difference between life and death.
