What Can You Do Now?

What to Do After A Fire

After the fire has been safely extinguished, remember, safety is always the top priority.  There are many hazards after a fire to your home or business. If at all possible, avoid the structure entirely until it has been properly restored. If you must enter, keep in mind:

  • Assess whether the structure is safe to enter. 
  • Be watchful for any electrical and ‘slip and fall’ hazards.
  • Smoke and Soot can contain many harmful contaminants and extreme caution should be used if you must be around them.  
  • Some materials might be wet and can be much heavier than usual. Be careful lifting. 

What To Do Before Help Arrives:

  • If it is safe to enter and the weather allows for it, open windows and doors to air out the structure.
  • Cover high-traffic carpeted areas with linens or towels as well as rugs and upholstery.
  • Limit movement to prevent cross-contamination in the building.
  • If power will be interrupted, unplug and empty refrigerators and freezers and leave the doors open.
  • Change HVAC Filters.

What NOT To Do Before Help Arrives:

  • Don’t touch items covered in soot with your bare hands. Contaminants can seep in through your pores and the oils from your skin can cause permanent stains on the surface or your items.
  • Don’t eat foods, including canned or packaged foods or beverages that may have been in or near the fire, heat, or the water or chemicals used to fight the fire.
  • Don’t turn on ceiling lights to fixtures that may have become wet.
  • Don’t clean or plug in electrical devices before they are inspected as they may have been damaged from the water and fire and could cause an electrical hazard.
