The Strength to Begin Again

We don’t  like to think about it, but a disaster can happen to any one of us.  It did for the McDermott family.  When Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast, it left a path of destruction in its wake.  In Breezy Point, NY the McDermott home was one of over 100 that were completely destroyed.  As Rosemary McDermott searched the debris, she looked for something that would bring her mother comfort at such a hard time.  It was then they came across a charred box.  And inside “something salvageable out of absolutely nothing.”

Inside the SentrySafe file was Rosemary’s family genealogy, a project her mother had taken years of care to complete.  And she knew when she had found something that would make her mother so happy that something could be saved from their former life.

It’s a promise we make with every safe we sell.  That should the worst happen, you’ll have what you need to get through it.  Whether it’s documents that are hard to replace, or the photographs and memories that will bring you comfort at this difficult time, we’ll keep them safe.  It’s a tragedy to lose everything, but when you own a SentrySafe you don’t really lose it all.  You still have the pictures from your wedding, your daughter’s first drawing and the insurance papers you’ll need to start fresh.  But most importantly you know you and your family will have the strength to begin again.

Real Testimonials Read by SentrySafe Employees

It’s a great feeling knowing that you’ve worked hard to help someone else.  In our humble opinion, few work harder than the manufacturers at our Rochester, NY factory.  They give it their all every day, but they are not just making a product.  They’re building protection that we truly hope you and your family will never need, but will be glad you have in the event of a fire.  So we had our employees read some of the many testimonials that we receive here at SentrySafe.  Because it’s always nice to know that someone, somewhere appreciated the hard work and care you’ve put into your job.
