October Is Fire Safety Month: Keep Your Belongings Safe with Products from Master Lock

Fortunately, our family has not experienced the effects of fire, but we knew a family whose house burned down when they were on vacation. They lost just about everything, and it took them years to rebuild and replace what they had lost. Many things, such as family photos and heirlooms, were irreplaceable. It doesn’t matter how a fire starts -- whether it’s an electrical issue, lightning or a wildfire -- the results can be devastating. So, it’s important for families to think about ways they keep their valuables safe, particularly during October -- Fire Safety Month.

It’s good to know that Master Lock has a large number of products to protect your home and its contents from fire, flood, theft or other tragedies. Let me highlight a few of them:

SentrySafe Fire Safe with Alarm (SFW123TSC)
This Fire Safe has a lot of premium features, such as hidden keypad entry and a loud audible alarm, to protect against theft. Other theft-deterring features include four large live-locking bolts, bolt-down hardware, and a pry-resistant hinge bar.

When it comes to fires, you can get up to $50,000 in insurance protection for your valuables when you enroll in the SentrySafe Fire Protection Guarantee. This safe is UL Classified to survive in a fire for one hour in temperatures up to 1700°F, but if you do lose your safe in a fire, SentrySafe will replace it for free.

Our family has a SentrySafe Fire Safe with Alarm, and it really gives me peace of mind to know that our important documents, family treasures, and other items are much less vulnerable to theft, flood or fire. With a multi-positional shelf, it’s easy to keep our items organized, too.

Master Lock 5422D Push Button Portable Key Safe

Master Lock 5422D Push Button Portable Key Safe provides secure storage of keys (or access cards) and offers a protective weather cover to prevent freezing or jamming. I love that this product is keyless because you can just give the combination to someone who needs access to your home, such as a Realtor, dog walker, house sitter or guests. The large buttons make it easy to use and see the buttons. And I like that this product is portable, so you can use it in multiple places, such as a vacation home or loan it to a friend.

Master Lock Vault

For valuable documents, you can get additional peace of mind by scanning them and placing copies in the Master Lock Vault. If your insurance papers, for example, are damaged in a fire or flood, you can access your copies in the vault so the information is right at hand 24/7. The vault is also great if you’re concerned about leaving confidential paperwork around. Leave it in the secure Master Lock Vault instead. Worried about forgetting important passwords? Store them in the vault, too. All of your documents are encrypted with 256-bit SSL Security -- the highest grade browser security available. Master Lock employs strong device and user Authentication Controls using internationally recognized security standards, regulations, and industry-based best practices for information security. In addition, they use Redundant Firewall Protection and Intrusion Detection Software to monitor their systems around-the-clock and prohibit unauthorized access.

These are just a few of the many products from Master Lock to help protect your home, property and valuables from fire, theft, or flood. During Fire Safety Month, I recommend that you think about how your belongings might be vulnerable during a fire and check out the Master Lock website at to consider what products might be useful in your home or office.
