Our first Church Campus Security Workshop was a success!

What a privilege it was for our agency to be a part of this workshop on Monday.  More than 50 people from churches in the area spent the day at First Baptist Church of Ft. Lauderdale discussing how to keep their campuses more secure. 

Dale Brooks of Brooks Consulting was our speaker and did a great job discussing the balance between securing the campus while remaining available for the congregation.

What did we learn?
  • Survey your campus and look for fire and safety problems
  • Establish policies and procedures for each security risk including prevention and what each person should do in case there is a problem.
  • Consider a keyless entry to control access
  • Require background checks on all employees and volunteers
  • Use social media to confirm info on resumes.
  • And much, much more!

Dale provided guidelines to help establish policies and procedures to help manage several threats and reminded everyone that these are living documents that should be reviewed and updated at least once a year.  It is important to include Why and add Who, Where, When and What. Policies to consider would include a Fire, Lost Child, Pets on Campus, Active Shooter and Natural Disaster procedure.

We think these policies and procedures are an important part of your risk management when it comes to controlling your insurance costs.

Thanks to everyone who attended and were part of a lively discussion.  Interested in future workshops?  Contact Doug Teuton or call (954) 771-0300 ext 250.
