After A Fire Checklist

What To Do After A Fire:

  • Secure the property and retain a contractor to board up windows, roofs, and additional damages.
  • If you need emergency housing, food, clothing, basic furniture, counseling for you or your children, you may contact the Red Cross, Salvation Army or your
  • church.
  • Contact your insurance agent.
  • If weather permits, open your windows for ventilation.
  • If electricity is off, empty your refrigerators and freezers.
  • Call a plumber to drain and blow out all water lines if heat is off in the winter (also known as winterizing).
  • Retain receipts for any money you spend. These receipts may be necessary for possible insurance reimbursements.
  • Nothing should be thrown away until the items are listed on an inventory of damaged belongings (for the insurance company to reimburse).


What Not To Do After A Fire:

  • Do not enter the structure without the proper Personal Protective Equipment.
  • Do not enter the structure until you meet with the Fire Official in charge.
  • Do not wipe or attempt to wash fire residue from walls, ceilings, contents, or other absorbent surfaces without professional assistance.
  • Do not use carpeting or upholstered furniture impacted by heavy smoke residue or debris.
  • Do not use food items or canned goods exposed to heat.
  • Do not turn on computers, televisions, stereos or electrical appliances until they have been cleaned and checked.
  • Do not touch anything. Oil from your hands can permeate upholstery, walls, and woodwork, causing additional damage.
  • Do not use any electrical fixtures, switches, or outlets.
