The New Zealand Police, Fire Service and Ambulance regularly attend properties that have flammables, dangerous pets or hazardous equipment on the property and these items present a danger to the attending emergency services personnel. There are many examples that show prior knowledge of the presence of these hazardous items would have prevented serious injury or even death.

TVs, computers, audio equipment, cellphones, engraved jewellery etc etc. Information such as passport numbers, drivers license and other important documents etc can be stored under the Digital Vault classification.
