What Do You Do After a Fire?

We often talk about safety measures to prevent a fire. But in the event of a fire, here are some things you can do AFTER a fire strikes.

Seek help - If you need temporary housing, food and medicines, contact your local disaster relief services, such as The Hawai‘i Red Cross.

Check with the fire department – The fire department can make an assessment to make sure that it is safe to enter your home again. Look out for any structural damage caused by the fire. The fire department should also make sure that utilities are either safe to use or are disconnected before they leave the site. DO NOT attempt to reconnect utilities yourself.

Call your insurance company - Contact your insurance company for instructions on protecting your property, conducting inventory and assistance with contacting fire damage restoration companies.

Conduct an inventory of damaged property and items
– It’s best not to throw away any damaged items until after an inventory is made.

Inform your mortgage company – After a fire, it’s also important to notify your mortgage company of the fire.

Save your receipts
- Start saving receipts for any items you purchased that’s related to fire loss. The receipts may be needed later by the insurance company and for verifying losses claimed on your income tax.
