5 Actions to Start Today
Draw Attention to Exits: People often try to go the same direction they entered when an emergency occurs. In a large congregation, make a note to point out all the exits to your congregants!
Create Clear Regulations: Have a clear protocol for handling money. People in groups rather than alone could help with accountability.
Child Safety: Parents should have the assurance knowing their children are safe and sound. The children center should have a check-in area that has a barrier to keep unauthorized people out of the kid’s area.
Have Emergency Lights: Ensure emergency lights are installed and tested regularly.
Prayer: Don’t forget about church safety in your thoughts and prayers! Use team prayer to help with church safety.
