Gas Station Canopy and PumpsLike any business, a gas station faces a host of security risks that can affect both the business and its customers. Fortunately, a gas station insurance policy can come to the rescue if the business faces a loss; but it's best to prevent security threats before they become a problem. We've compiled a few ideas to help boost the security at your gas station.

Security Cameras

When placed inside the building and around the pump area, security cameras give you a lot more insight into what's happening on premises. If a theft occurs or something else goes wrong, you can check the footage to help spot the source of the incident. This helps the police find the culprit and can also be used to file an insurance claim when necessary.

Deadbolt Locks

Regular locks won't cut it since they can be picked with relative ease. Talk to a locksmith about installing heavy duty locks, along with deadbolts on all exterior doors. This provides an extra layer of protection to deter would-be thieves.

Outdoor Lighting

It's easier for thieves to target dark areas, so installing plenty of outdoor lighting can be a good deterrent. With lots of light and security cameras, you have a much higher chance of catching thieves if the need arises. As a bonus, lots of light helps make your customers feel more comfortable.

Alarm Systems

Installing an alarm system is another layer of protection for the business. Since gasoline is flammable, you may choose to have the alarm directly wired to the fire department so you can get backup quickly if needed.

Window Break Sensors

These devices are installed on or near windows and are designed to sense if the glass is broken, after which they emit an alarm. They can also be wired into your alarm system for more comprehensive protection.
