What to Do after a Fire

  • Step 1 - make sure everyone is out of the house safely.
  • Step 2 - contact first response to board up any broken windows or tarp the roof.
  • Step 3 - A representative from first response will assist in calling your insurance company and getting you setup in a temporary living situation.
  • Step 4 - First Response will begin any emergency water removal and setting up temporary power as needed.
  • Step 5 - You and a specialist from the First Response contents division will meet onsite to begin inventorying all your salvageable and non-salvageable contents from the home. If there are any textiles that are salvageable a member from our team will pick those up to be cleaned and deodorized.
  • Step 6 - First Response will meet with your adjuster to get an agreed upon scope.
  • Step 7 - Once an agreed upon scope is determined First Response will then either coordinate Asbestos testing depending on the age of the home or begin the Mitigation process. The mitigation portion will consist of any necessary removal of smoke/water damaged materials, cleaning and deodorizing of the structure.
  • Step 8 - Once Mitigation is complete a walk through will take place with you and the assigned project manager from First Response. You will be walking through the structure to make sure everything meets your expectations and that you are satisfied!

Frequently Asked Question & Answer

After the first responders have extinguished the fire, your first priority is to ensure that all of your family members and pets are safe. After everyone has been accounted for, call us immediately to assess your property and begin a restoration plan.
We recommend that you hire a professional team to clean up fire and smoke residue rather than cleaning it yourself. Smoke is dangerous to inhale, and our team has the proper equipment and expertise to adequately handle the damage.
After a fire, the main concerns are the structural integrity of the home and the smoke residue. When a fire burns, it melts building materials and can create toxic fumes that linger within the property.

First Response assisted me cleanup my house after a kitchen fire. Black Soot traveled throughout my entire house leaving smoke damage everywhere. First Response arrived 40 minutes after. we had called and was able to get a team here shortly after. They are very experienced in Fire cleanups and was able to walk us through this process that we have never dealt with before.

First response is absolutely the first guy should make with any water fire damage or if there’s any indication of a chance of mold within your home or business I have watched endlessly as they have brought homes out of the absolute darkest places so that families can enjoy everything they had before the unfortunate incidents Cole is not only a professional but truly cares about everyone he works for!

Use First Response for a fire that we had in the garage. They quickly boarded up the windows and help us put in the claim. Cole was especially helpful. The next day they had their electrician restore our power and they began the demo and then set up the drying equipment. At the same time their cleaning crews cleaned the inside of the house. I would highly recommend them.

South Salem, NY

Where there’s smoke, there’s usually a fire. When a fire starts where it shouldn’t, hopefully there’s water-and LOTS of it! The First Response crew arrived shortly after the Project manager finished his inspection appointment and started preparing the home for a partial demolition. Many rooms in the home were affected by the water used to extinguish the fire, which were included on Rob’s protocol list for remediation work. Soot gets everywhere and all items in the home had to be thoroughly wiped down as it can be noxious and potentially hazardous to people and pets. The crew removed saturated sheetrock and insulation as well as flooring and unsalvageable items personal items from the home. It was hard for the customer to see their walls and floors dismantled and thrown away, but they understood the importance of it. It took the crew a week to finish the fire remediation protocol Project Manager Rob had outlined for them. The customer was very grateful for the long hours and hard work the crew put in to get the job done!!

South Norwalk, CT

The customer called First Response and the project manager met with them that same day to look over the damaged areas of the home to come up with the proper mitigation protocol. Rob immediately ordered a large dumpster to the home along with two crews that specialized in demolition work caused from fires and water damage. After many days of taking out the damaged materials whether it be from fire, soot or water, the home was finally looking a lot better. The customer called into the office to express their profound gratitude for the swift response and the professionalism of Rob and the crews.

Thornwood, NY

First Response received a call from the homeowner shortly after the fire department left. Rob the Project Manager was on-site within a ½ hour of the initial call. He documented the damage from the fire, water and soot. He called in multiple crews to start the clean up process. One crew removed damaged walls while another documented personal items that couldn’t be salvaged for the insurance claim. A 40-yard dumpster was brought in to help with the disposal of damaged materials and items. The final crew to come in washed every surface down to remove the soot left behind from the fire damage. The homeowner was very grateful for the services First Response provided.
