Right After a Fire
Most homeowners go to great lengths to practice fire prevention in their homes. However, if a fire does occur most people have little idea of what to do afterward. Most often after a fire in your home, you are unable to stay there due to fire and smoke damage. If leaving your home is the only option you do not want to leave it in an open condition and risk burglary.
First things first, make sure to lock up all doors and windows that you can. If doors and windows do not lock properly in the result of the fire be sure to board them up with wood and nails. You should also be sure to board up any holes in the walls and the roof. This should help prevent looting from your home while you are away.
Any valuables you can take with you do it. You can keep them on you, store them with a trusted friend or even rent a storage unit.
