With all the trouble we are having with weather created disasters, we need to make sure we have records of importance in a few safe places. Security boxes and locked freezers work well. I feel much safer with them sealed in an airtight bag as well, then placed in the storage box (freezer or security box). With all the mess these floods are causing, what a relief it is to have dry documents when you need them.

I agree, it is important to keep documents in a safe place in case of a disaster. A fireproof, waterproof security box is the best way to go. A locked freezer was mentioned but here is why I wouldn't go in that direction. In a case of a disaster and power goes off, it's not going to be nice to get into that freezer to retrieve your documents, having done that after being away for a hospital stay in another state and coming home to find the power had been out. Needless to say the freezer wasn't pleasant. Better yet, get a safety deposit box at the bank where your things are out of harm's way in case of a disaster. The price will be well worth it in case of a fire or flood, etc.
