In 2005, the CPOA sponsored the installation of electronic SupraBoxes to be used for emergency access at individual homes. Now that the boxes are more than 15 years old, the manufacturer warns that the batteries have reached the end of their life expectancy and the boxes should be replaced as they cannot be opened. Additionally, last year public safety adopted new key access technology that is embedded in the newer boxes.
Property owners who would like to participate should complete the Emergency Release form on the website and submit payment at the Cordillera Administration Offices by June 3. The form authorizes public safety to enter your home in case of an emergency. Installation of the SupraBoxes is expected in late summer.
Property owners who are currently participating in this program or who are having a box installed for the first time, must provide public safety with a key on a tag with the address.
Boxes are typically attached to either the electric meter or the gas meter. For more information, Contact Joanne Kelley at 970-569-6251 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
