General Action Plan

If you’ve been impacted by a fire, follow these steps to begin your recovery process.
  1. File Your Claim
    Be sure to file a claim with your insurance provider as soon as possible. This will allow your insurance provider to help you set temporary lodging, a rental vehicle, advance insurance proceeds, and other possible resources. Take time to review your insurance policy and familiarize yourself with all the possible benefits afforded to you.
  2. Reclaim Important Paperwork
    Visit city and county offices to reorder important paperwork or documentation such as a driver’s license, birth certificate, or social security card. Don’t forget to update your property tax information with your local county office if your home was lost to a fire.
  3. Utilize All Your Resources
    Don’t let your pride keep you from utilizing the many resources that can be found from local non-profits such as the American Red Cross and Salvation Army. Many organizations are eager to help with financial aid, lodging, meals, debris removal, and more. Check with your local City Office or TV and radio stations for information about non-profits and government agencies available to help you.
  4. Document Everything
    As you begin to rebuild your future, be sure to document as much as possible. Everything from conversations with insurance agents and contractors, to receipts for meals and items will be important to record in the days ahead. Rather than trying to commit everything to memory, grab a notebook or hop on a computer to capture notes regarding important conversations and help track expenses. Starting with a good tracking system from day one will save you a lot of time, effort, and possibly money in the long run.
