The First Contacts To Make After a Fire

A fire in your home or business can quickly disrupt your daily life and change your plans and your schedule. It will stop you in your tracks and demand all your attention. Suddenly, you will have a whole different set of things to take care of which you weren’t even thinking about yesterday. Have you ever stopped to think about who you need to call to take care of this emergency situation? Keep reading to find out more about the first contacts to make after a fire to help ensure your safety and begin fire damage restoration.

Fire department

Contacting the fire department is essential even when the fire is out. The fire department will be the ones to tell you when it is safe to re-enter your home or business. They will also determine whether your utilities must be turned off.

Police department

If your home will be vacant following a fire, you should contact the police department to let them know. You should also let your neighbors know so that they can be looking out for your property while you are not living there.

Your insurance company

You’ll want to get in touch with your insurance company right away to start the claims process. They will put you in contact with an adjuster who will help you on your restoration journey.
