Safety Ministry Report Annual Meeting January 2010
Submitted by Steve Hansen
The Safety Minister is in charge of setting up the security team that locks up the church on Sundays, maintaining the fire and security alarms, providing security for the collection money, handling liability issues, providing security for Pascha, dealing with problems with the sledders, maintaining the fire extinguishers, and any other safety issues. He is also in change of maintaining an accounting of the building and elevator keys.
In 2009 the Safety Ministry completed the following:
· All fire extinguishers were inspected and recharged if necessary.
· The original Church building was fire protected and wired into the existing fire alarm system.
· Church Mutual DVDs were distributed to the Educational Team Leader for viewing by all Sunday School Teachers. The main focus of the DVDs is to educate the teachers on youth safety and to reduce the risk of any types of child abuse. In 2010, I plan to refresh the list of those individuals willing to ensure that the Church is secured following each and every Sunday Service. I also plan to do some research on establishing guidelines for volunteers and those who have close contact with our children.
Additionally an electrician checked the wiring in the old building and it was determined that it had been replaced at a later date than previously thought and that is was fine and did not need replacement at this time.
