What do you keep safe?

SentrySafe offers a wide variety products to keep your important items protected from fire, flood and theft.  It’s a place to keep important documents, valuable memories and keepsakes protected and organized.  And even though I work here, I recently had a personal reminder of what that meant.  Two weeks away from our wedding, my fiancé and I were tearing apart the house looking for his birth certificate.  We recently purchased our home safe, but hadn’t quite gotten it out of the box yet.  It was a crazy moment, and we feared we wouldn’t be able to get a marriage license in time for our wedding.  Thankfully we found it!   As soon as it was discovered hidden under a depth of unimportant papers, I knew exactly where to put it next.  Now our Fire-Resistant Safe is full with important documents and photos!

But it got me thinking, what do my fellow employees keep safe?

“I started working at Sentry in August of 1985 in Customer Service, I quickly learned the value of Sentry safes with the testimonial letters and photos we would receive. I think to me among the most precious items that I store in my Sentry safe are our wedding photos proof book, the negatives from the photos through the years and most recently a digital copy of our photos.”  -Ellie Kelly, Sales Administration Manager

“I keep our wedding videos, and the photos of the birth of our 2 boys in our safe at home.  In the end everything is replaceable except our past’s most important memories..” – Anthony DeSalvo, Web Development Manager

“Art has been a lifelong passion of mine and I always have a little sketchbook with me. Over time I have filled several books with sketches of the places I have been and people I have met. They have become as much journals as sketchbooks with each drawing reminding me of a moment in time. I would hate for anything to happen to them so i keep them in a Guardian storage box.”  Josh Coon, Senior Brand Manager

“I would want to store my children’s pictures and my memory box in a SentrySafe.  My memory box contains special pictures of my father and Michael Jackson memorabilia.  Both MJ and my father died within three months of each other and it would mean a great deal to me if these items were preserved.”  -Veronica Dasher, Customer Service Supervisor

“One thing I would want to keep protected in my safe would be all of my son’s artwork.  His time, hard work and effort to create this art, in addition to all my important documents, are priceless to me.” –Joanne Straub, Marketing Production Manager

 

But now we want to know? What do you keep safe?

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.
