With the holiday season right around the corner, it’s wise for ministries to evaluate their fire safety plan. Whether your ministry is hosting a holiday party, prepping treats for charity, or running a community kitchen, make sure you’re well-prepared with these tips.
Prevention and equipment maintenance are always good investments. Not only does maintenance increase appliance usefulness, it can prevent losses caused by property damage and injury. Brotherhood Mutual has laid out eight questions (LINK) every ministry should ask themselves about hazards hiding in their kitchen facility.
Another beneficial way to prepare for a fire is to create a disaster plan. Disaster plans include information about how to continue the “business” of ministry. For instance, it organizes where you’ll meet if your church is closed, how you’ll access church records, and how to respond to emergency situations.
Here are five steps to help you get started on a disaster plan today.
If your church or school has a kitchen, you have the ingredients for a fire. Regardless of kitchen type—commercial, residential, or combination—built-up grease, poor kitchen design, or inadequate education can all lead to a disaster. Talk with your American Church Group agent today to ensure you’re covered for potential disasters.
