POST DISASTER RECOVERY & RECONSTRUCTION
The immediate post-disaster period is a critical time as quick decisions must be made for the short and long-term recovery process. Quick action and mitigation can make all the difference for a successful disaster recovery. It is important to monitor local media sources, make you and your family’s safety a top priority, determine what can be salvaged, and hire a Public Adjuster.
Throughout the recovery period, it is important to monitor local radio or television reports and other media sources for information about how to obtain emergency housing and financial assistance. Visit https://www.fema.gov/ for up-to-date information and to apply for assistance.
Put yourself first before property! Make you and your family's safety a top priority. Before you move back in, make sure your home is properly cleaned and decontaminated to ensure a safe living space. Wear personal protection equipment and clothing before you enter a damaged building. Hazards can include mold, asbestos, and carbon dioxide (CO2).
Assess your possessions and determine what can be salvaged or what will need to be discarded. Take photos of the inside and outside of your home and your contents- rugs, furniture, and valuable possesions- before throwing anything away.
Hiring a contractor to rebuild can become a daunting task. Therefore, having an experienced professional that can provide effective planning and guidance is essential when dealing with objectives and planning the work that lies ahead following a disaster. A Public Adjuster may be the first housing related professional you'll want to have on your side.
The Public Adjuster and his or her team will assess the damages, analyze and review costs to repair, and negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf until the claim is settled. Making sure you have the best possible team on your side can mean real success in long-term recovery.
