1-800-BOARDUP is a values-focused organization that provides comprehensive recovery services to fire victims in need. Disaster victims are frequently traumatized and unaware of the important steps required of them to minimize damage and liability after a devastating event such as a fire, storm, or vehicle impact. Securing unsafe floors, walls, or ceilings and protecting the premises from unauthorized entry are often required to make the building less hazardous. This is important not only to protect personal property but also to prevent injury or death. We are committed to providing reliable, professional emergency services to victims in need and are unsure where to turn for help.

“I have used 1-800 Board Up for all of our board ups since they started in Ft Wayne. Before we had 1-800 we had no one to call that was ready to do this. It is very comforting to know that when we have a fire we can call 1-800 and within a half hour to an hour they will be there ready to secure any scene. It’s not just a job for these people, they really care about those in need of their services and protecting whatever is left and preventing any further damage”.

“Not only has 1-800 Board Up been very quick to respond to our incidents. They have gone beyond just boarding up and securing the property they have worked with the victims to recover from their tragedy”.

PROTECHS FITS THE NEED EVERY TIME-
House Fire, two story wood frame single family fully involved at the time of call. 4 degrees above zero and snowing an inch an hour. Called 1-800-Boardup 30 minutes into the fire for 14 windows and 3 doors to be boarded. When Boardup arrived we were still fighting the fire they waited for over two hours till we were done with no problem. The responding personal from Boardup were great to work with, they were happy to do their job. They are part of our team all the time – every time.
