Operation Blue Angel In Wyoming

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Law enforcement in Wyoming's Park County are unveiling a new plan to help county residents, in the event of an emergency.

The plan, called "Operation Blue Angel", is open to residents 55 and older who live alone, as well as anyone living alone, and has a potentially incapacitating medical condition. Sheriffs Deputies will go to the home of those who qualify, and install a lockbox that will hold a house key.

The lockbox combination will only be known to emergency personnel, and is reset each time the lockbox is opened. County Sheriffs said, in a statement, the lockbox will not serve as a "lockout" service for those who qualify.

County Sheriffs said Operation Blue Angel is funded by a local resident. To learn more, click on Connections.
