If you can safely reenter the building, find these documents whenever possible:
Id’s, insurance paperwork, and any medical and financial information as well as other property that is valuable to you, such as cash, jewelry, mementos, wedding albums and more. Be careful not to disturb the scene as well. Do NOT discard property that has been damaged and document your losses with photos and video. Do what you can with mops, dryers and blowers to prevent further damages; and keep detailed receipts throughout this process for any expenditure.
