Contacting the Safe Manufacturer
For certain fireproof safe manufacturers, such as Sentry, accessing a locked safe is as easy as getting a new key from the company. To ensure you are able to do this whenever the need arises, record the model, lock and serial number exclusive to your safe. When you lose your key or forget the combination contact the manufacturer online or by phone to order replacements or to reset the combination.
Most likely, you will not be able to use a crowbar or similar device to gain access to your safe, though it may be worth a try in an emergency. It may be possible to have a locksmith unlock the safe, depending on the specifications of the safe. Call a local locksmith to come to your home or bring the safe, if small enough, to a locksmith to have him unlock the safe.
Fireproof Safe Tips
When purchasing a safe, keep in mind that where there is fire there is usually water. Therefore, you should check to ensure that the safe is also waterproof to protect your belongings. To avoid lost keys consider getting a safe with a combination lock as opposed to keys, and pick a combination you can remember while under pressure.
