As with burglary, fire safes are not fire proof, they are fire resistant. If the safe cooks long enough, everything in it is toast. A fireliner buys time. Time for the FD to put the fire out. Simply put, the best fireliner is one that buys more time. Having said that, you don’t have to settle for whatever protection the safe company gave you. It is possible to improve your fire safety services if you can think inside and outside the box.

First – Leave the gates to your yard unlocked. Leave your driveway gate open. I have watched firefighters use rotary saws, bolt cutters and crowbars to gain access to yards and driveways.

Use your safe everyday so it becomes routine. Protect the safe code and change it occasionally. There are also models available that open using your fingerprint (very cool!).
