After The Fire

House on fire

When a fire occurs, it can be a devastating experience.  Many are left wondering what to do next.  Information on what to do during the first 24 hours, insurance considerations, valuing property, replacing documents, salvage hints, and more is what you will find in After the Fire: Returning to Normal (PDF).  The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and U.S. Fire Administration have gathered information on where to begin and who to contact when lives are suddenly turned upside down by a home fire. (Photo courtesy Gary Nieter)
