What Should you do After a Fire?

  • Contact your insurance agent– Contact your insurance company right away and ask them what to do first.
  • Take care of yourself and your family– Contact your local disaster relief service, they will help you find food, clothing, medicine and a place to stay. You have a big job ahead of you. Get plenty of rest, and ask for help. Do not try to do it all alone.
  • Get Finances in order– Contact your landlord or mortgage lender. It is also important you get in touch with your credit card company to report credit cards that were lost in the fire. Save all of your receipts for any money you spend, these receipts may be needed later by the insurance company, and you will need them to prove losses claimed on your tax return.

Tips to Minimize Fire Damage Loss

  • Air your home to reduce smoke odor
  • Change filters on furnaces
  • Toss any open food packages
  • If power is off, clean your refrigerator out and leave the door open
  • Send smoke and soot-damaged clothing and drapery for professional cleaning

Important Fire Safety Reminders

  • Do not try to turn on water, gas or any other utility unless otherwise directed by the fire department.  
  • Do not enter your damaged home or apartment unless the fire department says it is safe.
  • It is important to understand the risk to your safety and health even after the fire is out. The soot and dirty water left behind may contain things that could make you sick. Be very careful if you go into your home and if you touch any fire-damaged items.

To Avoid Making Big Mistakes Don’t :
