After our home burned in a Colorado wildfire, I searched in vain for a guidebook or tips to tell me what to do next. There was lots of pre-fire advice (mitigate, videotape possessions, check your insurance policy, etc.) but nothing to help us cope with the aftermath.
Please download my FREE After the Fire: Tips for Wildfire Survivors. It will give you practical advice from other wildfire survivors – people who also lost it all in a wildfire.
You will get through this! Two or three years from now, it’ll seem like it was another lifetime. It’s probably hard to imagine at this point, but some good things may come of all this. At the very least, you’ll discover how very kind, supportive and generous people are. So many folks will be there to help you. Loss of life is never a good thing, but you will discover that the stuff you lost can all be replaced. Well, almost all of it.
I hope this information is helpful. Please contact me if you have questions or would like to submit a few tips to help others.
