Brotherhood Mutual: Time to Melt the Ice

As our preferred insurance provider, Brotherhood Mutual®,, knows firsthand the havoc below freezing temps can have. Freezing weather is a major cause of property claims, especially for churches because they are not occupied all throughout the week. Loss control specialists have seen the damage form when water freezes and expands in pipes, which leads to cracks and leaks. They’ve also seen what happens when water freezes in sprinkler heads – they can break under the pressure, resulting in hundreds of gallons of water raining down from the ceiling, water logging sanctuaries, and education wings.

Brotherhood Mutual®, encourages churches to take time now to develop a freezing weather routine to help prevent as much damage as possible. This article from the Brotherhood Mutual Safety Library will help get you and your church started. You’ll learn what steps to take each time a freeze event is predicted for your area, as well as things to do when the weather is warm. Be sure to check out the additional resources at the bottom of the article for more in depth information.

As a member of the Brotherhood Mutual Ministry Partner Program, the Baptist Resource Network of Pennsylvania/South Jersey (BRN) benefits from their desire to keep churches open and safe for worship and to help effectively manage risk. Brotherhood Mutual resources and services are for all of their members, regardless of who currently insures your ministry.
