Robert Siciliano: 10 Things to keep in your Big Bolts Fire-Safe

Your house isn’t going to catch on fire, right? Well, you hope not, so maybe you even fool yourself into believing it can’t happen. But I’ll bet you have fire insurance, and maybe a collapsible escape ladder, and a fire extinguisher or two. I have all this, and I also back up all my digital data in the cloud, including pictures and documents.

And I have a fire-resistant safe.

All this preparation is so that if there ever is a fire, I can reduce or eliminate any risks to lives and valuables.
Most documentation is replaceable, but certain things are not. Sometimes, when documentation is replaceable, getting duplicates can be a nightmare.

Mementos: Photos, love letters, children’s drawings, and so on. You probably have a box full of things that you like to browse through every ten years or so. Or photo albums on a shelf. If these items were incinerated, you’d be very unhappy.

Insurance papers: Home, auto, life, health, and business insurance papers should be protected.

Health related information: if you have health issues and multiple files, records, and prescriptions, they should be protected.

Financials: Documentation regarding investments, bank account numbers, stocks, bonds and coins should be protected.

Wallet: Photocopy everything in your wallet front and back and put the copy and extra credit cards and cash should be protected.

Identification: Birth certificates, passports, driver’s licenses, Social Security cards, insurance cards, and any other identifying documents should be protected.

Titles: Deeds, boat, and automobile titles should be protected.

Wills: Any and all documentation related to a will should be protected.

Jewelry: Most insurance providers require a safe in order to obtain insurance coverage.

Extras: I have an extra passport, extra credit cards, extras set of keys, extra emergency cash, and extra identification, all protected in my safe.
