When it comes to storing documents, many companies lack the space and manpower to do so. This is why being able to keep information at an offsite location can help ensure everything runs smoothly within the company. Fireproof has been providing secure offsite storage for over 100 years, allowing businesses in the Central Ohio area to maximize their potential and minimize storage costs. The following are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions from clients regarding offsite storage services.

How can I access my stored information?
You can easily create a request online and we can deliver your information to you anytime, anywhere. Along with physical delivery, we also offer on-demand scan services, meaning we can digitize paper files and documents, and provide through secure online delivery.” – Ben Katz, Solutions Architect

What type of security features are in place to ensure compliancy?
“We are completely HIPAA compliant, which is the most stringent of compliancy regulations. We not only require all of our staff to be HIPAA certified but every room within the building can only be accessed with a keycard. In addition, we enforce that name badges and photo ID’s are available and visible at all times within the facility.” – Chris Hazelet, Business Development

How do you locate our box if we need to retrieve it from your warehouse?
Your box will have a bar code label attached to it. When we store a box with files in our warehouse, we scan the barcode label on the box, as well as the bar code label on the rack where we will place the box. When any of our clients need to view their files, the process is as easy as typing their name into the computer.” – Michael Sweet, Business Development.

Who’s Behind The Box – Chris Hazelet

Posted under Who's Behind The Box by Fireproof on March 29, 2017

Chris Hazelet is one of the newest additions to the Business Development team at Fireproof. He has only been with the company for four months but that hasn’t stopped him from excelling in what he does. Here’s everything you need to know about Chris.

Q: Tell us a little bit about your position at Fireproof.
C: I work in Business Development and I’m responsible for creating brand awareness with Fireproof’s current customers. I do so by analyzing client needs and establishing whether there are any areas that would be improved by utilizing Fireproof’s services.

Q: Do you have a favorite story from your time at Fireproof?
C: With my limited time in the company, I’d have to say that my favorite highlight was the Ohio Township Association tradeshow. The event was at the Convention Center Downtown, about 3 weeks ago. It was nice being out there with my colleagues and supporting Fireproof—spreading the word about what we do to potential new clients. We got a lot of great opportunities from the tradeshow and it was a great time.

Q: What is an unexpected fact you learned from Fireproof after being hired?
C: I was blown away by some of the high-end clients that we support here at Fireproof, as well as by the testimonials from clients on how proficient we are at what we do.

Q: Do you have any hobbies?
C: My biggest hobby is boating—I love being on the water.

Q: What are some of the things that interest you?
C: I love pets; I have a three-year-old yellow Lab/Pitbull mix named Gauge—he’s my pal. I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and my family. My parents live in the Westerville area and my sister, brother-in-law and niece live in California; they come home multiple times a year—it’s always nice spending time with them.

Q: What was the most unusual job you had before working at Fireproof?
C: I never really had an unusual job but I had an interesting job. I worked in sales at JEGS High Performance for five years. I dealt with a lot of gear-headed people who were building classic cars; they’d come in and ask us for recommendations on motor builds and all that. It was a lot of fun, but over time I wanted to keep it as more of a hobby than a career.

Q: What is one skill that you would like to master?
C: I like to be proficient in whatever I do, so I definitely want to be able to quote an imaging job (converting clients that are hard-copy to electronic) with less support than I have now being so new. I also think it would be great to be bi-lingual—that’s a personal goal of mine. I have studied Spanish in High School and College but I was actually thinking about learning American Sign Language—my girlfriend is a Speech Pathologist and deals with a lot of cases of cognitive developmental delay.

Q: Where did you go to school?
C: I went to Columbus State for Marketing, Hondros for Real Estate, Oracle University for Application Support (PeopleSoft-HR—an HR application by Oracle) and I also have Six Sigma training. I’m a little bit of a jack-of-all-trades.

Q: What is your favorite sport?
C: I love extreme sports such as snowboarding and wakeboarding, and I also like to play golf. I’m not a huge college football fan but I love watching the NFL.

Q: What is one of thing most people don’t know about you?
C: I was born in a small town in Eastern Ohio called East Liverpool. I still spend a lot of time there; we camp on an island that is in the middle of the Ohio River–there’s a lot of boating and camping out there.

Q: What is your favorite part about your job?
C: My favorite part is that I’m actually passionate about what I do. I actually see a value associated with Fireproof’s business plan—that it’s a total solution for a client when it comes to managing their records.

Q: What is one thing everyone should know about Fireproof?
C: That we are very stringent in our processes and regulations. Making sure that we are abiding by the rules within our industry helps us continue to be successful.

Q: If you could have a drink with anyone, who would it be?
C: Either Ronald Reagan or George Strait. In my eyes both of them are great American heroes, both are very morally strong and both of them are good role models.
