From the Trustees and Safe Church Committee…
Safe Church and the Trustees have been working to update procedures and ensure safety aspects of our church building are in order. In recent weeks, the emergency button system was tested, the building inspected by the fire department and the kitchen by the health department, and the AED was serviced.
The AED is now in working order. The Trustees have contracted a service provider for the device to ensure that it is always available if it is needed. We have learned that it is important for the cabinet to remain closed and the device untouched, except for in emergency situations. Handling the device when it is not needed can result in it being rendered useless for emergencies.
