We all have valuables that we would be devastated to lose in a fire. Some of them are keepsakes, some of them are worth a lot of money and some of them are important legal and business documents. Fireproof document storage is a major concern for individuals and companies, and there are a range of precautions that you can take to make sure that your valuable documents are protected at all times. Below are four tips for fireproof document storage.

How To Make Your Document Storage Fireproof

Invest in a Fireproof Safe

Fireproof safes are designed to withstand blazes so that your important documents, cash, etc., survive. The one thing to note with a fireproof safe is that it is likely to get soaked with water, either because of the building’s sprinkler system, or when the fire department comes to put out the fire. It is wise when buying your safe to check that the safe is both fireproof and waterproof.

Strategic Location

Fireproof safes are tough, but they are not indestructible. If temperatures get high enough, even a fireproof safe is not going to be a fortified enough document storage option. Because of the nature of fire, and the fact that it generally spreads from the lowest part of your house to the highest, it is a good idea to keep the safe on the lowest level. That means either the ground floor or the basement if you have one.

The Freezer

If you don’t have a fireproof safe, or feel that it simply isn’t necessary, items that are stored in the freezer, when the freezer is not in the kitchen, typically have a higher survival rate than anywhere else. If you have a chest freezer in a separate room, the basement or the garage, it might be wise to place any highly valuable documents in there. The freezer is often one of the last things to burn in a fire.

Self Storage Unit

If you are going away for an extended period of time and you have a self storage unit available, it might be wise to utilize your self storage space as document storage. The benefit of keeping your documents in a self storage unit is that the facility and your unit will be well looked after while you are not around. It’s the job of a self storage facility to ensure that their client’s belongings are looked after and protected against burglary and natural disaster. Consider investing in a self storage unit for an extra level of protection.

A fire in the home or office is many people’s worst nightmare. While there isn’t much one can do besides call the fire department once a fire has erupted, the above methods and suggestions can help you protect your documents from fire damage and destruction.

Most small-business owners are unaware of the benefits self storage can have to streamlining operations at an office. 

The primary advantage of using self storage is to clear a space from clutter. While this in itself can help to make an office run more efficiently, freeing up space, it's not the only benefit of self storage. 

Perhaps the often overlooked perk of self storage is the ability to house documents. This can really benefit small-business owners, as they might have one-of-a-kind documents lying around that could be susceptible to damage. A file cabinet or hard drive just won't cut it if there is a flood or fire. If a valuable document gets damaged, it can be a big liability for any business owner. Luckily, Jiffy Self Storage provides a solution. 

Besides budget priced Toronto self storage spaces, Jiffy Self-Storage is now offering air conditioned Jiffy Workspaces/Offices with internet, light and power for small businesses and for business persons having outgrown their Toronto  small office home office (SOHO). There are a limited number of these workspaces available so contact Jiffy before all the spaces are gone.

When most people think of self storage units, they think of a place where they can keep their valuables, primarily when they are involved in a home move. However, there are far more benefits than just storing furniture or seasonal items.

Self storage's most underrated benefits are that many reputable facilities offer document storage, as well as a number of solutions for small-business owners. 

Too often do home and business owners worry about losing one-of-a-kind or valuable documents. The fact of the matter is that accidents could happen that would ruin these documents. Hard drives crash and fires can spark unexpectedly. Utilizing self storage is the best way to avoid valuable documents from being destroyed. At the very least it can offer peace of mind, knowing they are safe.

Besides budget priced Toronto self storage spaces, Jiffy Self-Storage is now offering air conditioned Jiffy Workspaces/Offices with internet, light and power for small businesses and for business persons having outgrown their Toronto  small office home office (SOHO).

As it is now six months into the year, every small-business owner should take a step back and assess their progress in the first half of the year. Crunching the numbers and seeing how you stacked up compared to the same period of time last year can significantly help you improve efficiency in the next half of the year. This assessment will tell you what you've been doing right and what you may need to work on.

While storing important financial information on a computer could be susceptible to getting lost, small-business owners should consider self storage for any important documents. Any document that can't be replaced should be well looked after, and that's exactly what reputable self storage does.

Mobile marketing has been increasing in popularity since the rise of the smartphone.

Any small business can benefit from implementing a mobile market campaign. This can be particularly beneficial because it allows a business to be flexible with its marketing strategies.

When changes are on the horizon, a mobile marketing campaign allows a small business to be swift with updating promotions, giving them an edge over the competition.

However, as much of the business world is shifting toward the Internet, there is still a need for storing hard copies of documents. Any small-business owner looking to ensure documents are safe should look into a reputable self storage facility.

As more small businesses tackle the paper war with human resources software and document storage, questions are raised concerning the documents that cannot be digitized, like incoming notes from clients, customers and employees, as well as government-required paperwork.

For many human resource departments, in order to ensure compliance with government policies, tax law and nondiscrimination policies, accurate records need to be maintained – often stretching back almost a decade. For Canadian small businesses that are strapped for office space, affordable self storage in Toronto is the answer.

For proper document storage, small businesses will want a storage unit that is climate controlled with adequate security to protect confidential or sensitive information and can be conveniently visited at any time.

With numerous hospitals and healthcare aficionados turning to the digital storage of confidential patient records, hard copies of the past are becoming increasingly antiquated by the day.

But that doesn't mean hard copies are going away – especially for those in the medical industry.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services requires Medicare-managed program providers to retain records for 10 years. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act has also affected the record-holding policies for those changing over to Electronic Health Records (EHRs).

So while hospitals and physician practices look to free up office space by going to an EHR system, those hard copies still need to be stored somewhere. Thus, many in the health industry are storing confidential patient records in secure storage units.

Despite the devastation following the Boston Marathon bombings, Toronto officials recently announced they don't have any plans on bringing in additional security officers for the city's GoodLife Marathon in May. According to the Toronto Star, Constable Wendy Drummond said city officials will be reevaluating the situation; however, she doesn't believe anything will be done since there doesn't appear to be any connection between Toronto and the Boston incident. GoodLife Marathon race director Jay Glassman told the source it will be important for officials to wait until all the facts are in before any final decisions are made.

According to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Toronto City Manager Joe Pennachetti said he and other officials' main concern is making sure the runners and the public feel safe not only in the weeks leading up to the GoodLife marathon but the day of the event as well. 

If any business managers have documents or items they would like to put into a Toronto document storage space in the meantime to give them some peace of mind, it is suggested they do so.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford recently announced that he doesn't have any issues with Porter Airlines' jet service to begin using the runways at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. According to the Toronto Star, Ford said that not only will the runway extension benefit the airline, but it will also create jobs in the city. One of the reasons some community members are concerned about Ford's announcement is that it means that the health of the city's waterfront will be compromised.

Toronto Councillor Adam Vaughan told the source by allowing Porter's jets to use the runways, it will most likely lead to "all jets." 

"The minute you open up to Bombardier jets, you open them up to every jet," he said. "That means small corporate jets, which are twice as loud and twice as dirty."

A lot of residents have grown concerned over the past few months, as they are concerned that Toronto is getting too industrialized too soon. However, this could mean new business expansion, which could be a good sign for the city's economy. If a business manager is looking into moving into a bigger space but hasn't been able to yet, it might be a good idea to rent a Toronto document storage space.

A surgery for Toronto councillor Giorgio Mammoliti was scheduled recently after he was rushed to the hospital. According to the Toronto Star, it hasn't been announced what type of surgery is needed, but officials did announce that it is "nothing life-threatening."

Hospital bills can get expensive, and it can sometimes be hard to keep them organized. However, it can be easier if an individual chooses to rent a Toronto document storage space to keep all the necessary papers on file.

According to the Toronto Sun, Mammoliti recently accused Canadian government officials with conspiring against him. He contended that someone had attempted to break into his computer remotely and copy files as well as impersonated him to obtain phone records.

After Canadian officials announced they wanted to withdraw from the United Nation convention that is fighting against the spread of droughts, some officials believe Prime Minister Stephen Harper will regret his decision down the line. According to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Harper said he chose to drop out of the program because it was "too bureaucratic."  

Although this decision might not be viewed as the strongest on a global platform, Harper said he is not changing his mind. If anyone has documentation they would like to always keep on hand but can't find the space, renting a Toronto document space would be a good idea.

The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification officials said they were upset with the decision, according to the Globe and Mail.

"Canada, a country that is frequently subjected to drought and where 60 percent of the cropland is in dry areas, is also a major actor in global efforts to address food security in developing countries," the organization said.

New reports surfaced that suggest about one-quarter of parking tickets issued in Toronto never make it to court. According to the Toronto Star, the number of canceled parking tickets has increased about 5.5 percent within the past year. Some experts believe it might be due to the fact that the city council decided to increase the time limit on the grace period for motorists who overstay their time at pay-and-display meters. 

Individuals who rack up a lot of tickets each year might want to hold onto them. In this case, it would be best to purchase a Toronto document storage unit to keep track of the tickets. 

The source reported that Ontario authorities are cracking down on individuals who fail to pay their parking tickets in time. Transportation Minister Glen Murray said he is pushing for legislation that would deny individuals the right to renew their license plate until they pay their fines.
