I ran across this and after having to deal with my parents home loss I thought as he updates this it might be some great info for us to follow.
Fire is my worst case prep need. So it should be for all, says me, and maybe me only. It can happen too fast to fight. (Obviously.)
Great information. I work with a lot of restoration guys and their stories are sad indeed.
You can buy residential sprinkler systems. They do work. Seen it before a couple times the fire was out before we got there! (VFD)
Having lost a home to fire, I feel for that family. There is much we can learn from the experience of others if we will listen and act. From experience I can tell you that having an inventory of your belongings before a fire is a hugh step towards avoiding days worth of effort trying to reconstruct an itemized list from memory. Even if you do not conduct an inventory of your belongings, it is well worth taking detailed photos/video of your stuff. Detail each wall, floor, ceiling, closet and cabinet. It saved me when I produced a picture of a lamp worth $400 that the adjuster said was a $40 item. Also remember from day one that the adjusters work for the Insurance company and do not have your best interests in mind. I will follow the blog to see if I can gain any new insights on how to be better prepared.
