Subject: Definition of 'Geographically independent' in terms of offsite backup storage

In looking over the policies of a contract I've been put on, the critical stress has been put on data security and 
retention.  They currently use offsite storage by swapping tapes between their two buildings which are only 15km (9 
miles) apart.

Is that enough?
How is that any safer than a good fireproof vault?
