Steps after filing a claim
Mercury Insurance would also like to remind policyholders affected by the tornado to take care when returning home because the danger has not passed for most residents in impacted areas. Unstable buildings, live dangling power lines and other hazards may remain, and families should protect themselves by knowing what to do before returning home.
FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) recommends residents put together a "cleanup kit" that includes cleaning equipment (eye protection, particle respirator, rubber gloves, sponges, brooms, mops, towels, trash bags and spatulas), cleaning products (bleach and odor-neutralizing products), and safety and first aid items (flash lights, adhesive bandages, hydrogen peroxide, bottled water and antibiotic ointments).
Mercury recommends residents follow these safety tips when preparing to return to their neighborhoods and homes after this violent and deadly storm.
