After Damage Occurs
After a fire wreaks havoc on a property, be it residential or commercial, the cascade of emotions can be overwhelming. The gamut of emotions — from shock and disbelief to grief and anger — can be overwhelming. It’s not uncommon for individuals to grapple with memory issues, anxiety, or depression following such a significant loss. In these trying times, your primary focus should be on emotional recovery and the well-being of everyone directly impacted by the loss. Our team steps in to shoulder the burdens of the logistical aftermath, ensuring you can dedicate your energy to healing and rebuilding emotionally.
Document Loss Information
In the aftermath of a fire, it’s essential to record pivotal details related to the incident. Key information includes the exact date of the fire, the non-emergency number for the fire department, the official report number, and the name of the fire marshal or investigator in charge. Having these particulars on hand can be instrumental during the claim process. Refer to our Fire Checklist for a complete list of key information to obtain after a fire loss occurs.
Secure Immediate Assistance
Whether it’s due to structural concerns, smoke contamination, or utility interruptions, the immediate aftermath can make it challenging, if not impossible, to continue daily operations or live comfortably. Securing immediate assistance is crucial, as it facilitates temporary relocations, ensures safety, and lays the groundwork for the recovery process. Taking prompt action helps in minimizing disruptions and ensures a more efficient path to restoration. A great resource for immediate assistance will be your local American Red Cross, as most chapters have a rapid response on getting you food, clothing, medicine, and places to stay.
