With wildfires, hurricanes and other natural disasters striking each and every year – it’s up to all of us to ensure that we have a plan for keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe. Oftentimes, that involves evacuating our homes and leaving our precious belongings behind. Sometimes we have time to prepare for this, but sometimes it happens suddenly and without warning. If you’re forced to leave your home without gathering your most important possessions, you’ll want to make sure they’re in good hands regardless. The best case scenario in this situation is that your passport, social security cards and items of highest sentimental value are in a fireproof safe.
SentrySafe Fireproof and Waterproof Box
They make safes that don’t just lock securely — they’re also fireproof, waterproof and overall resistant to the elements. This fireproof safe from SentrySafe is UL Classified for enduring a half hour at 1550°F in case of a wildfire or a home fire that gets out of control. This box is also waterproof and ETL verified for up to 72 hours underwater so in the event of a flood you’ll have a couple of days to recover it before documents get damaged.
The tubular key lock adds an extra element of security that’ll prevent the lid from opening in the event of a fire, and the document safe inside features two built-in straps for securing passports, social security cards and other sensitive documents.
