The damages of the Gran Canaria fire continue to be evaluated. The Government of the Canary Islands has approved economic aid worth half a million euros. Those affected are already submitting claims for losses in housing, negotiations and agricultural and livestock farms. These measures involve the declaration of a special action area for forest and environmental restoration. Javier PÃ©rez Arquillo, president of the College of Insurance Mediators of Santa Cruz de Tenerife explains what aspects cover the insurance of those affected and what we have to take into account when hiring insurance.
