And remember, most fire safes are made to protect PAPER data. Most will
not protect electronics/plastics from the high temperatures of a "house
fire" or similar.

So while having a backup of your critical data is very important, having
a copy stored "off site" becomes a critical part of the strategy.

Be sure you know for sure that wherever you store your backup will
survive. A small bank deposit box may be an option, for example.
