The devastation of losing a home to fire can be compounded by what follows: a long process involving insurance paperwork, site cleanup, and rebuilding. 

Oregon's Department of Consumer and Business Services offers some tips on thinking about disasters before they happen.  DCBS urges people to make sure they have adequate insurance, and take a home inventory when things are quiet and no threat is looming.  Brad Hilliard of DCBS visits with details on pre-disaster planning. 

DCBS offers a toll-free line for issues with insurance or financial services providers: 888-877-4894.
