Safety Is Our #1 Goal™
Approved K9 Training Facilities
Our focus on safety has been going on for years, but it took initial shape in 2009 when we launched our “Safety Through Education & Personal Responsibility” campaign”, targeted towards incoming UW students. Soon after, we authored with Madison Fire Department staff a series of fire-safety messages that would be of value to our storage customers moving in and out of new residences. We then sought out other safety messages to impact other facets of our customers’ lives. That body of work can be found on our safety and resources page. Please feel free to share any these safety messages with those you care about dearly.
Freeway Service Vehicle Sponsor
We are proud to sponsor “Beltline Bob” Freeway Truck Service Program, operated by the Dane County Sheriff in conjunction with the Wis DOT. Equipped with a changeable message sign the vehicle assists motorists free of charge assisting stranded motorists, operating, on USH 12-18 from Interstate 39 - 90 to Old Sauk Road.
