But in reality, there are two types of emergency service you need when you experience a fire. Of course you need the Fire Service to come and put the fire out, but depending on the extent of the damage, you may also need emergency services from your restoration company to help you get the immediate aftermath under control. The cost of this part of fire damage repair costs will depend on what needs to be done urgently to make the building safe.
