     or where immediate access is necessary for life saving or firefighting purposes.
            • Shall be of an approved type and shall contain keys to gain access as required by the fire official
            • Shall be installed on all new buildings. Exception: Residential one and two family dwellings
            •  Where an addition, renovation or remodeling of an existing commercial building has taken place
            •  When buildings are large or when multiple tenants occupy a building, additional key boxes shall be installed when required by the fire official
            • The lock box shall be in place with keys prior to a certificate of occupancy being issued
