Notice of Claim or Incident

The form should be submitted via email to Robin at or Rick at It can also be faxed to 360-574-9401.

Water Damage Claims

Water damage losses of any kind need to be handled differently than other claims. Water damage can create a lot of additional destruction if not addressed properly and immediately! Structures and sub-structures, as well as flooring and woodwork, can deteriorate rapidly if water is not immediately extracted commercially with drying and dehumidification. Not only can deterioration progress, but mold and mildew will develop within 24 hours or less.

All maintenance staff, on-site staff and emergency personnel should be trained on how to handle water claims. Even if there may not be coverage for a loss for one reason or another, you still want to mitigate the damage. Immediately after a water damage claim of any kind is identified, the water source should be shut off. You can begin removing any standing water and contents; however, a commercial water restoration company should be called out immediately (most, if not all, have 24-hour emergency response). We recommend that all first responders know this procedure and have emergency restoration contractors’ 24-hour phone numbers available.

If you need assistance locating local water restoration contractors or have any questions regarding losses or claims, feel free to contact AHRP’s Director of Claims, Rick Gehlhaar, at (360) 574-9035 x106, or email him at
