BC Wildfires Response – First National

General Angela Calla 21 Aug

As the devastating wildfires in British Columbia continue to pose a significant threat, we understand the importance of providing timely and accurate information to you and your clients. At First National, we are committed to supporting you during these challenging times and want to ensure that you and your clients are equipped with the necessary guidance to navigate through this situation effectively.
In the event that any of your clients are impacted by the ongoing wildfires, it is crucial to take immediate action. Here are the steps your clients will need to follow:

1. Contact their insurance company: Advise your clients to contact their insurance company as soon as possible to open a claim for any fire-related damages to their property. First National does not have the ability to open a claim directly on their behalf.

2. Inform First National: To enable us to provide the necessary support and assistance, your clients will need to contact First National to let us know that they’ve made a claim with their insurance company. First National can be reached by phone at 1.866.557.5509, or your clients can submit a ticket through My Mortgage. Your client will need to provide:
• The name of their insurance company
• The adjuster’s name and contact information
• The nature/scope of the damage their home has experienced
Once this information has been submitted, a dedicated First National Insurance Representative will contact your client to work closely with them and their insurer to ensure that all appropriate actions are taken.

There may be temporary or short-term financial assistance options available to eligible clients. We will work closely with them to explore any potential options.

Thank you for your continued trust and partnership. Together, we will ensure the well-being of your clients.
