SLAVE LAKE, May 17, 2011
The Dominion Claims team has made Slave Lake damages our top priority this week. As one of the first insurers on the scene in the aftermath of the May 15 Wildfires, we are extremely focused on assisting our policyholders in the area by beginning to assess and facilitate required repairs.
What if I can't stay in my home?
After the fires, your home may not be habitable. We will pay for the increased costs of temporary lodging, for covered losses, until you are able to return.
