Protect Your Valuables with Fireproof and Water-Resistant Safes

When it comes to fire safety, you may think you have your bases covered with smoke alarms, fire extinguishers and a fire-escape plan. But don’t overlook the importance of a safe to protect your valuables from both fire and water damage. Investing in an all-purpose safe will help ensure your valuables will be protected. This way, if a fire or flood occurs in your home, you can have peace of mind knowing your water and fireproof safe is helping to protect the things you value the most.

What to Put in Your Water and Fireproof Safe

Some common things people choose to keep in their safes are important documents such as social security cards, birth certificates, passports, insurance policy information and bank account information.  Data such as memory cards, USB sticks, DVDs, CDs and phones may also go in your safe. Finally, items such as money, checkbooks, jewelry and other sentimental items are commonly kept in safes.

Features of Water and Fireproof Safes

First Alert offers waterproof and fireproof safes that are built to withstand not only theft, but also water and fire damage as well. Specific features of each safe vary per model, but generally speaking, fireproof safes are resistant against temperatures up to 1700 degrees Fahrenheit for up to one hour. Their composite construction and waterproof seal keep the inside contents dry even when the safe is fully submerged under water.

Some of the First Alert safe models also feature bolt-down technology, which makes it even more difficult for thieves to pick them up and steal them. Some models also feature pry proof technology with concealed hinges, making it more difficult for a thief to use a crowbar to pry it open.
