These procedures are intended to inform, not to alarm. We have not had a threat or incident, but we want to be as prepared as possible for either evacuation or lock down if necessary. In the event of an emergency, a text will be issued from church office personnel to inform leadership. A standard emergency message will be sent instructing either an evacuation or lock down. Department directors and others who are on the notification system will be asked to keep their cell phones turned on and available to receive messages.
