Operation Blue Angel 
 
 

Operation Blue Angel is a program intended to provide emergency personnel access to a residence in the event of an emergency, the resident becomes incapacitated, or is otherwise unable to open their door.

Lock boxes, similar to those used by real estate agents, will be installed by sheriff’s deputies at the homes of eligible senior citizens, free of charge.  A spare key to the residence will be secured inside the lock box and the access code will only be available to emergency personnel and will only be used in an emergency.

Participation in “Operation Blue Angel” is strictly voluntary, and is limited to rural Park County residents age 55 or older who live alone; or residents who live alone or are frequently alone and have a medical condition that is potentially incapacitating.  Eligibility will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

Participants will be required to complete a program application and sign a release of liability.  Upon acceptance to the program, installation appointments will be scheduled and a deputy will come to the residence to install and secure the lock box.  It should be noted that Operation Blue Angel is not a “lock out” service and the combination of the lock box will only be available to emergency personnel and will not be provided to the resident.  The combination will be reset each time the box is utilized.

If you have any questions regarding Operation Blue Angel or would like to apply for participation, please contact the Park County Sheriff’s office at (307) 527-8700.  A downloadable/printable copy of the application and liability release form can be obtained by clicking on the links below.  Both forms may be completed prior to scheduling an installation appointment or the deputy will bring the forms with him/her and assist you in completing them.  They cannot be completed online.  The liability release form must be signed IN THE PRESENCE OF THE DEPUTY.
