Fire Alert: Auto Club Insured Members Can Call Claims Center for Help and Service

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 15, 2008) - Those who have homes and vehicles threatened by the wildfires across Southern California and who are insured through the Automobile Club of Southern California's affiliated Interinsurance Exchange can call 1-800-67-CLAIM (1-800-672-5246) for assistance.

Auto Club Interinsurance Exchange claims specialists are now on the scene at several evacuation centers, but because of the magnitude of the blazes, they may not be at every center.

"If an Auto Club representative is not at your evacuation center and you are an Auto Club policyholder who has been evacuated, please call 1-800-67-CLAIM," said Cortland Ray, the Auto Club's vice president for insurance claims. "An adjuster will contact you shortly to make an appointment to provide assistance."

Those with auto insurance may also be eligible for claims assistance if their vehicles are lost or damaged due to the fire, depending on the coverage within the policy.

"During a catastrophic event such as these fires, we want our members insured with us to know they can contact us immediately if they need our assistance," Ray said.
