Question:

“Do you insure churches? I’m a trustee in my church and wondering what things we should be looking for?”

 

Answer:

Yes. I help churches protect what’s important. Until you can review your policy with an agent, I’m listing 10 Steps To A Safer Church.

  1. Form a safety and security team.
  2. Regularly inspect your buildings and grounds.
  3. Remove snow and ice promptly.
  4. Guard against water damage.
  5. Have your electrical system inspected.
  6. Follow the “5 L’s” of crime prevention. (lock-up, lighting, landscaping, lookout, law enforcement)
  7. Use surge protection.
  8. Plan and properly supervise recreational activities.
  9. Screen workers and volunteers who work with children.
  10. Hire competent and insured contractors.

Hopefully, your church recognizes that it could be doing more to reduce risks, improve safety, and enhance security at your church. This is just a summary of the items. If you would like more information, please contact my office.
