Equipment Security and Insurance
Risk Management's experience is that many equipment losses are due to theft, often without any signs of forced entry or removal. Installation of theft prevention devices is strongly encouraged. Certain manufacturers of such devices, such as Anchor Pad, Inc., provide equipment replacement guarantees that will eliminate (insurance) deductibles for departments who use their products. Facilities Management can install theft prevention devices at departmental request with a modest cost to the requesting department. For further information about these devices, please call Facilities Management at 847.491.5201.
Northwestern University insures all of its own equipment. Refer to Northwestern's Insurance site for information on filing a claim and other related policy matters.
