After the Fire

While our primary job as it relates to firefighting is to protect the lives and property of the residents of the City of Rockledge, many times we do not realize the long lasting emotional, physical, and financial effects that fire can have on its victims. The initial trauma of experiencing a fire is only compounded by the confusion of wondering “What do I do now that the fire is out and the firefighters have left?”

Once the fire is out, the damage becomes another task completed and another statistic for Fire Department records; however, for you as the occupant displaced by fire, it may become a nightmare filled with questions and uncertainties. All of the things normally in order and not a concern are now in disarray and present problems that must be dealt with immediately.

We at the Rockledge Fire Department understand what you are going through and we want to assist you in any way that we can. Please download our helpful booklet, which contains information and suggestions that may help you now and in the coming days.

If there is anything we can do to help you, please call us at 321-221-7540 X 3504.
