Have you ever thought about installing a safe in your home or business, but weren’t sure if it was that important to your security? According to Calgary Police Service, during the month of March 2020, break and enter property crimes:
- 140 incidents to dwellings (residential)
- 446 incidents to commercial property
With numbers like this, year over year, commercial properties and residential properties must take every precaution to protect and safeguard property. Check out previous Calgary Rekey Lockworks blogs for information on locks and security. Securing entry points both at the office and home is common knowledge, but what about securing items inside the home or office?
Consider a safe to secure property inside your home. It might not be something you thought of for your home but think again. Your residence more than likely contains items you do not want to be stolen. Items that should go into a safe, items you don’t want to be without:
- Social Security cards
- Insurance Policies
- Power of Attorney and wills
- Any document you might need in a hurry, ie, identity cards, proof of citizenship, birth certificates
- Personal items: collectibles such as a stamp or coin collection as well as old photos
Rather than keeping the above items in a bank deposit box, these items are better secured at home. You never know when you will need these items, and you don’t want to have them hidden around your home where someone can find them.
Businesses will often have a safe installed to keep important business documents: insurance policies, financial records, contracts, and sensitive documents should all be in a safe.
Important items are to be stored in a safe. Choose a knowledgeable professional Calgary locksmith expert so the right safe is chosen for the right purpose. A safe should be fireproof, not portable – secure it down. With so many choices, call Calgary Rekey Lockworks (403) 202-7656 – your local locksmith and experienced installer.
