how to handle insurance after a fire part 2

In 2019, fires burned nearly 2 million acres of land in Alberta. That is over 3.5 times the amount of land burned than in the last five year average. In the summer of 2019, more than 10,000 people had to be evacuated and 16 homes were destroyed. Fires seem to be becoming an increasingly significant threat to land in Alberta, not to mention the homes on that land.

Filing An Insurance Claim After A Natural Disaster

Residents and business owners have one thing in common when it comes to property insurance: it is a necessary part of owning or renting a space in the event that an unforeseen disaster were to inflict damage on the property. Building fires, flooding, hail damage, destructive windstorms, and blizzards can all cause extensive damage to both residential and commercial properties, especially here in Alberta, where we experience particularly harsh winters with lots of rainfall and snow during the cold months.
