News & Events Cannon Protects Valuables During Home Fire
Marty, Dorrie, and Haley B. from Middleberg kindly shared the following experience and photo with us:
"On February 21, 2012, my husband, my 15 year old daughter and myself were awakened to our house being on fire. We were able to get out just in time before the entire house burned to the ground. We had just purchased a Cannon fireproof safe a couple of months prior, and thank God we did. To our surprise when we opened the safe every document had been saved, which included our Social Security cards, Marriage License, Birth Certificates, jewelry, and, of course, our guns. You don’t realize how much these things mean to you until everything else you owned is there one day and gone the next. Since we were in such a hurry to get out of our burning home, our driver’s licenses which were not in the safe were gone, and in order to get new ones we had to have all of the documents in the safe to show proof of who we were. We were able to go get new ones right away. Now we are building again and since the safe had a life time warranty we have ordered a new one which was not a problem with the Cannon Company. The Cannon Company customer service representative, David, was so nice and helpful; he made it easy. I am writing this letter just to let the Cannon Company know that you’re safe made a difference during the most horrible time in our lives."
Thanks for sharing! Marty, Dorrie, and Haley aren't alone in having experienced the security that comes from owning a Cannon gun safe. Their story is just one more example of the fact that "Nothing Protects Like a Cannon!"
