Where are those Bandages?

Did you know that there are six first aid stations in the church? If a mishap that requires first aid occurs in the church, would you know the closest place to find the supplies you need? All first aid stations are clearly marked with a sign.

Main Floor:

In the Sanctuary in the back, near the stairs up to the balcony, above the clothing rack, in the left corner.

In the lobby under the TV and below the coat rack. There is an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) on the other side of the wall.

In the closet across the hall from the choir room.

Lower Floor

In the hallway beside the double doors to the staircase. There is an AED nearby.

In the Creighton Hall kitchen in the cabinet to the right.

In the small kitchen area near the Community Room in the cabinet above the counter.

The First Aid stations contain the following helpful equipment: a variety of bandages, rolls of gauze, an instant ice-pack, non-sterile gloves, antibiotic ointment, and disposable and expandable masks for use in CPR. Blankets can be found at the two stations near an AED and there is a pillow in the lobby.

Please take a moment to note the location of each of these first aid stations in case you need them in an emergency. These stations are periodically restocked but you should notify me or other staff when we are out of something. We do not stock oral or injectable medications. If you require medications or have an allergy, please carry your medication with you for self-administration.
