If there were a fire or other emergency on a Sunday morning at First Church would we be able to evacuate the building in a safe and timely manner and then account for everyone? We’ll find out when we hold our annual all-church Emergency Evacuation Drill near the end of each service. Anyone who has difficulty walking, or trouble with stairs, will be assisted by the ushers.
IMPORTANT: Parents and other adults may NOT go downstairs to get children, as that will block their exits! Plan to meet your child’s class in front of the row houses on Ogden (“Abbott Row,” to the east of First Church) where you will check them out with their teachers. Please talk to your children about the drill so that they know what to expect, and if it is chilly, make certain that coats are available in the classroom on this day.
