Step 1

Determine what needs to be done to stabilize the situation. Make reasonable decisions to protect property and minimize risk of further loss or increased costs. This makes sense even if you are uninsured. If coverage applies, this is expected. Generally, try not to alter physical evidence or dispose of materials unless to further protect property or life. Careful decisions are in order. Preserve as much as possible.
