If your home was devastated by a house fire, you have a lot on your mind.

So what are you supposed to do next?

Here’s what you need to know.

3 Things to Do After a House Fire

Check out this list of three things to do immediately following a house fire:

  1. Take care of your family and yourself
  2. Stay out of the house
  3. Call your insurance company

Here’s a closer look at each.

#1. Take care of your family and yourself

If you need to, contact a local disaster relief service (like the Salvation Army). They can help you with clothing, food, medications and even a place to stay. You absolutely need to ask for help – there’s no reason you should go through this alone.

#2. Stay out of the house

Don’t enter your home unless the fire department says it’s safe. If there are things you need to get out of your home, you may want to call a fire remediation company for help.

#3. Call your insurance company

Your insurance company will need to know about the extent of the damage to your home. You can call us and we’ll help explain – we know how to evaluate house fire damage quickly and precisely.

If you don’t have insurance, you might need to contact the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, your religious organization, the public health department, the state emergency services office or a nonprofit crisis center.
