In the event of fire damage you should discuss with the Fire Brigade what services are available for temporary protection of buildings and contents. If arson is suspected police should be notified immediately. Obtain from both the Police and Fire Brigade their Event or Report Number if possible and the identity of the attending police and senior fire brigade offices and their respective station.
Theft (or malicious damage)
Theft or malicious damage claims should be reported to the police immediately. Obtain from them their Event number and the identity of the attending police and their station. If there is damage to your premises that affects security you should have emergency repairs done immediately to ensure the premises are lockable.
