Church Mutual Offering Twin Cities Organizations Resources to Prepare for Armed Intruders

World News: . []

Instances of armed intruder attacks continue to occur in the United States and beyond. Unfortunately, these attacks are not limited to a select few and anyone could be impacted. Church Mutual Insurance Company is partnering with industry experts Firestorm and ALICE Training Institute (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) to help organizations develop plans and procedures to keep their people safe before, during and after a violent attack.

Church Mutual, the nation’s leading insurer of religious organizations, has created an armed intruder resource kit that’s available, at no cost, on their website. It features, among other things, videos, checklists, FAQs, and important assessment and planning guides. To access the tools and information, visit:

Additionally, Church Mutual will be holding a seminar on Thursday, May 23, in Burnsville, just minutes from the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, for houses of worship, schools and nonprofit organizations. Leaders will learn to identify signs and how to best de-escalate an armed intruder crisis from security experts at Firestorm, ALICE Training Institute and Church Mutual. Attendees will hear from an attorney with Maple Grove-based Henningson & Snoxell, Ltd. about legal considerations organizations should take related to safety and security.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Identify and monitor behavioral warning signs and anonymously report suspicious activity.
  • Work with local law enforcement to develop a security plan.
  • Respond to an armed intruder – new techniques and tactics are replacing the traditional lockdown method.
  • Minimize injury and increase survival rates from a violent event.
