May Is National Wildfire Awareness Month
-May is National Wildfire Awareness month, and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has declared May 1 to be Wildfire Community Preparedness Day. Joe Powers from SERVPRO of Atascadero/Paso Robles, the fire damage repair company, said, “This is the perfect opportunity for communities to come together and participate in activities to help keep everyone safe from the threat of wildfires.”
Property and life loss to California wildfires has been in the billions of dollars, the most recent costs for 2020 wildfires exceeds $20 billion. Even though communities are recovering and rebuilding, there is no substitute for prevention. The NFPA is a global nonprofit organization with more than 50,000 members around the world that has been devoted to eliminating death, injury, property and economic loss due to fire since 1896. The organization delivers information and knowledge through more than 300 consensus codes and standards, research, training, education, outreach and advocacy.
The NFPA provides a free toolkit that can be downloaded for helping communities come together and plan fire prevention. Since in-person gatherings are limited or on-hold in many places, this year’s Preparation Day focuses on what communities can do to protect homes and businesses from the threat of wildfires.

- Parties that are insured have the right to choose any contractor or mitigation specialist, not just the one the insurance company suggests. Many people think that the only choice they have is the one company the insurance provider refers to. However, that is not true. The Insured ALWAYS HAS THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE.
- We will be in direct contact with the adjuster for approvals and updates, so you don’t have to.
- We also can schedule any necessary testing, abatement, storage pod, and dumpster deliveries.
- Not all people realize how important it is to stay in contact with their adjuster throughout the mitigation process. Your adjuster should be able to give you the information about how the claim process works if you have a deductible and how the payment process works.

It is very important to Mitigate the damages done by a fire.
SERVPRO of Atascadero can help restore you property.
When you experience a fire in your property, it can devastate members of the home and be emotionally distressing. The most important step when there is a fire is to ensure all members of the home are safe.The stresses of accounting for the valuables and keepsakes that are irreplaceable come to mind. The last thing one thinks about is what steps are next.
Once everyone is outside the home and the fire is extinguished, contact us. Our staff is available 24/7. We will arrive on the scene quickly to assess damages and get to work right away. We even work with your insurance, saving you steps. Right now is a time for you to worry about other things.
Putting off mitigation and restoration can be a very bad idea. The longer soot residues remain in the home and on materials within the home the harder it will be to remove. Not only can the soot be hard to remove, but it can also carry further through the house and the leftover smoke is not healthy for you or your family.
If you experience a fire catastrophe, contact our team. Call 805-541-1271.
