Safety, Security and Fire
The safety and security of our members is the first priority of the
Gamma Phi Beta House Corporation Board (HCB).
Gamma Phi Beta chapters include many different types of housing including free-standing residential houses, University-owned houses or dormitories and in some cases, meeting spaces that can be on-campus or off-campus.
New Safety Initiative
Gamma Phi Beta is taking proactive measures to protect our members and reduce the significant risks related to fire with a new mandatory policy passed by International Council:
All facilities owned by the Sorority or by affiliated house corporations with live-in capability are required to be fitted with a fire sprinkler system by December 31, 2015.
MJ Insurance has developed a tool for HCBs preparing to install life-saving sprinklers that can be found here.
Annual Safety & Security Walk-through
Each HCB completes an annual Safety & Security Checklist of a living facility within two weeks of returning to school in the fall. The HCB Member or house director joins the chapter house manager to walk through the facility checking for potential areas of concern. Once the report is submitted, the HCB follows up on any items that require repairs or maintenance.
Housing Facility Insurance
All Gamma Phi Beta housing facilities carry appropriate insurance coverage, many through MJ Insurance, a premier carrier for interfraternal housing nationwide. Visit www.mjsorority.com for additional safety and security information for our members and chapters.
While our HCBs carry insurance, the insurance does not cover any member's personal property. Personal property may be covered under a parent's homeowner's policy or through separate renter's insurance.
