What to do after a fire
A FIRE IN YOUR HOME can significantly impact you and your family.
In the days and weeks that follow, you may experience anxious
feelings, depression, difficulty concentrating, sadness, anger, fatigue, hopelessness, fear and nightmares. These feelings are normal. They’re a natural reaction to a traumatic event. These feelings will lessen and for most people, completely disappear.
It will take time, and you may need help, but you will eventually put the disaster behind you. Often, the hardest part is knowing where to begin and who to contact. There are agencies in your community that can help you work through the crisis, or you can contact your doctor for counseling referrals. Meanwhile, there are so many things to do: recover lost documents; salvage furniture and appliances; begin cleanup… Where do you start?
