Shortly after my husband and I got married a close friend of mine had a terrible fire at her house. She and her husband were on vacation and an electrical surge turned their stove top on. Fortunately they were not home because they lost EVERYTHING. Not only did they loose all of their everyday things but they also lost a lot of memories that could not be replaced. They lost wedding photos and more since their computer was destroyed, they took it to a store to try and retrieve data but not much was recovered. I learned a lot from their tragic experience but the biggest lesson I took away was to have a fire safe for my valuables and honestly if my friends had not had their fire I would have never gotten a fire safe. We actually have 2 because as I learned from my friend you need different types. The water from the fireman’s hoses does just as much if not more damage than the fire so we made sure both are waterproof and we have one that is for digital media specifically. Now we make sure all important documents are in one safe and we constantly back up our photos onto discs and put them in the media safe because I never want to loose all those memories.
During the month of October, SentrySafe is donating a portion of the sale of their specially-designed Pink 1100 Fire Safes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. If you do not already have a fire safe I strongly suggest you get one now and protect your memories and your life story. SentrySafe is also hosting giveaways this month so be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
