Fort McMurray wildfires
Fort McMurray Wildfires – Xactware Support
Residents of Fort McMurray began returning home Wednesday, June 1, after Alberta officials lifted the mandatory evacuation orders that force 80,000 people to flee last month. One of the recommendations for returning residents listed by the CBC News is that residents contact their insurance company before they start cleaning up or throwing things away.
Areas of the city most affected by the fire will remain closed. Officials estimate that 2,400 buildings were lost in the fire, while "25,000 were spared, including the airport, all schools, hospitals and water treatment facilities," according to the Insurance Business Canada website
In the wake of this tremendous loss of personal property, Xactware is dedicated to providing the necessary resources to meet the needs of our customers who are responding to these catastrophic events.
Getting back to work
BBC News reports that up to 15,000 people were expected to return on Wednesday, although three neighborhoods of the city most affected by the fire remain off limits. Those returning were asked to bring enough water and food for 14 days.
Xactware is ready with the following resources:
Xactware's Pricing Data Services are closely monitoring the areas affected by these fires and their impact on construction costs. Interim pricing lists will be released as needed to support restoration efforts.
Xactware will notify customers via email if new price lists are needed. If no interim price lists are published, customers should expect that all price changes reflecting any demand surge as a result of the storm will be included in the standard price list publications released each month.
Throughout the rebuilding process, Xactware will survey each affected market to stay abreast of any demand surge and resulting price changes; we will report changes as they occur.
