Special Instructions for Fire Teams

Fire Teams are based on the number of children in each room.  At the beginning of each meeting, we count the number of children in each room and assign a sufficient number of moms to return to the room and retrieve children in the case of a fire.  We announce Fire Team members at the beginning of each meeting.

If you arrive a little late and drop off your children after we have canvassed the room, you will notice a black line drawn across the sign-in sheet.  If there are open spaces above the line you may use them to sign in your child(ren).  If there are no spaces above the line then you should sign below the line.  When you sign in below the line you are automatically part of the Fire Team.  If a fire alarm is heard, you are to proceed to the room and assist the Fire Team in retrieving the children.

If you drop off children in more than one room, you are to proceed to the room that has your youngest child.

Those not on the Fire Teams should follow the Fire Safety Guidelines here.

Infant/Toddler Room Fire Team

Proceed to the auditorium (Soward Hall).  Take your child only.  Babysitters will take the other children.

Listen to your Fire Team Room Leader for directions on how to evacuate the building.  Your primary exit is through the west door: proceed through the back door of the auditorium, down the corridor to the blue door on your right, down one flight of stairs and out the exit door to the Church parking lot.  Wait by the tree at the end of the driveway for attendance and further instructions.  In the event of a real emergency, you may need to listen to your Leader for the alternate exit.

Preschool Room Fire Team

Proceed down the back staircase to the Gym.  Take your child AND one other by the hand.

Listen to your Fire Team Room Leader for directions on how to evacuate the building.  Your primary exit is through the west door: proceed out the blue door at the southwest corner of the gym, up one flight of stairs, and out the exit door to the Church parking lot. Wait by the tree at the end of the driveway for attendance and further instructions.  In the event of a real emergency, you may need to listen to your Leader for the alternate exit.
