A fire is an unfortunate event that can happen to anyone at any time. The first thing that you should do after the fire has been put out is to contact your public adjuster as soon as possible. Many insurance companies would require you to contact them within a certain amount of time after the incident to notify them of the loss that you have sustained. Let the public adjuster help you report date of loss, types of damage, injuries sustained, location of injuries, involvement of other parties, and description of the damaged contents. It is also important to create a visual record of the damage that you have sustained.
