Church Mutual Insurance

Armed intruder attacks continue to occur in the United States with alarming frequency. These attacks can happen anywhere at any time, typically with little or no warning; any of Church Mutual’s policyholders could be impacted. Church Mutual has partnered with industry experts ALICE Training Institute and Secure Education Consultants (SEC) to help you develop plans and procedures to keep your people safe before, during and after a violent attack.

In addition to engaging in proper risk control measures, it’s also important to know what is covered in your insurance policy. Armed security, volunteer teams and concealed carry all come with certain risks and responsibilities. 

View the following materials to learn more about armed intruder security, legal liability, considerations and more.
