    Two days ago we began a 3-day focus on emergency preparedness.  Today we take a look at a recommended fire-proof safe and what to consider when choosing one. (October is fire-safety month.)

    When choosing a fire-proof safe for your digital items, this Lifehacker article recommends protection for 30-minutes at 1550 ºF and and internal temperature under 125 ºF.

For the next 3 days, we will focus on emergency preparedness.  A few things have come up on our newsfeed and we find them too important to keep to ourselves.  This Lifehacker article is a great place to start with the decisions and conversations aimed at preparing ourselves and our families and friends in the event of an emergency. Seven Emergency Preparedness Tips You May Not Know by Patrick Allen of Lifehacker has compiled 7 tips and also several links to very handy, downloadable pages that can be printed to get your plan in writing.  Then the emergency plan, the important information on each family member, and even a phone tree, can be copied and placed in your emergency kit and go-bag (see Thursday’s post), your fire-safe (see Friday’s post), your wallet, and given to family members outside your home.
