Identify Red Flags After a Fire

Fire scenes are dangerous if people are allowed back into the building by firefighters. Usually, a good fire sprinkler system will help with fire suppression and manage fire damage, soot damage and smoke damage to a minimal level. However, any food, beverage, and medicine should be discarded if they were exposed to soot damage or smoke damage.

Firefighters will use the resources in their fire trucks to ensure services such as gas, fuel, and electricity are disconnected during the firefighting efforts.

Once the firefighting team has disconnected services mentioned, it is the job of the owner, depending on the extent of the fire damage, smoke damage and soot damage, to get a licensed individual to reconnect them. Utilities should be disconnected immediately in the event of an electrical fire or utility room fire.

If an electrical fire or utility room fire occurred, then you should speak to an electrician and your insurance agent to start the next steps in the cleanup process.

You should be in direct contact with your insurance company. If you have any details about the fire such as the extent of fire damage, soot damage and smoke damage, and any information about a utility room fire, let your insurance claims manager know. You can also give them information on the fire sprinkler system and how well fire suppression was handled by the fire truck and fire hose. The sooner you contact your insurance company, the faster the fire restoration process will be.
