Safe entry program helps Amherst seniors in emergency

Any senior living in Amherst can apply for the box.

AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) – A new free program in Amherst aims to help the elderly in case of an emergency.

Amherst seniors are eligible to receive a free lock box to hold a spare house key. The lock box has a combination on it, and the code will be on file with Amherst 911 dispatchers. This will allow paramedics to get inside the home faster.

Any senior living in Amherst can apply for the box. To receive your free box, send a written request to Amherst SALT Council PO Box 206, Amherst, MA, 01002 and include your name, address and telephone number.
