The previous renters left without returning the remote for the garage door. The problem is the door is closed and there is no other way into the garage. I'm not sure of the brand of garage door, but how would I open the door from the outside if I don't have the remote or how do I program a new one, assuming I can find one that looks like the old one.

Do local fire departments or police departments have remotes that will open the door. It is a roll-up door and I don't want to break the door. Any ideas?
