A good fire safe is an important part of an overall security strategy.  The results of a fire can be devastating enough, but if you lose all of your important documents and other valuables, it is even more devastating.  So if you are considering purchasing a safe, make sure that it has a fireproof rating.  Typical fireproof ratings are 1-hour fireproof and 2-hour fireproof.  A 1-hour fireproof rating, for example, means that the safe has been tested under actual fire conditions to ensure that the interior of the safe does not rise above a certain temperature.

Fireproof safes are also tested to keep the interior humidity low, to prevent damage from the water used to put out the fire.  You can also buy special media safes, which are intended to protect valuable computer backup data from the harmful effects of fire and water.  They are tested to much sticter standards to keep your valuable media safe.  For more information on the fire safe.
