Prepared to redeploy to the interior should conditions warrant

VANCOUVER, Aug. 2, 2017 /CNW/ - After serving customers and working with broker partners at the Resiliency Centre in Williams Lake, Economical Insurance is shifting its wildfire claims service back to Vancouver.

"We are encouraging any of our customers impacted by the wildfires to call our 24-hour emergency claims number at 1-800-661-4404," said Trevor Brick, Director of Claims for the Western Region at Economical Insurance. "We are keeping a watchful eye on the BC wildfire situation and if circumstances require our presence on the ground once again, we will redeploy immediately."

"We have eight tips for people to keep in mind when returning home after the evacuation," added Brick. "There are things people should do to make the transition as safe and as smooth as possible."
