Secure Vital Records Storage

The Importance of Managing Vital Records

Your organization can function without data, and there are certain essential records that are more important to a business than other types of documents.  For these vital records, storage in a safe, secure environment is a must.  Not only must they be protected, but they must be easily accessible.  Armstrong Archives offers secure vital records storage to ensure your organization’s essential documents are available when you need them.  

Secure Document Destruction

Examples of Vital Records

What are vital records? One source defines them as any essential documents or files that will be needed “anywhere from a few minutes to 24 hours after a disaster to get your office up and running again.”  These are records that would be very difficult or expensive to recreate, if they even can be recreated. 

Examples of vital records include legal documents, tax records, insurance policies, employee records, production blueprints, permits, patents, and business contracts. Each of these types of vital records can be essential for a company’s survival, recovery, and continued legal compliance in the face of various challenges. 

Secure and Strategic Offsite Storage

While an empty office space might seem like an option for storing vital records, offsite vital records storage offers significant advantages. Offsite facilities boast enhanced security with controlled access and fire protection, mitigating risks like theft, fire, and natural disasters. Facilities offering climate-controlled records storage provide optimal environmental control to preserve records and ensure compliance with industry regulations. For these reasons, Vital records storage should always be handled offsite rather than on your premises. 

With Armstrong Archives’ secure offsite storage for vital records, you can feel confident that your essential files will be properly preserved and there when you need them. Our facility provides clean, secure storage that ensures your records will be there when you need them. And quick, convenient access to your records is just a phone call away.
