Sentinel Moment This Week at St. Mark's

Sentinel Moment: What To Do in Case of Fire?

In case of fire in the Sanctuary during Mass, what do you do? Has that thought or question ever gone through your mind?

The Parish has a Crisis Management Plan which has the answer to this question. You will CALMLY follow the direction of the Sentinels, Ushers, or Function leader. They all have been trained on the Evacuation Plan for the Sanctuary. Each seating section of the Sanctuary has a declared exit door for that section to be directed to, to keep all the sections from trying to exit from the same doors at the same time.

So please calmly follow the directions of the Sentinels, Usher, or Function leader to the proper door.

Do not run, start pushing, or start yelling. The key word here is “calmly” leave through the door directed to with your whole family or party.

Please get away from the building, but do not go to your car and attempt to leave. The Fire Department is responding and will need all the drive ways clear for their equipment. Everyone leaving at the same time will block these responding firemen and their equipment.
Do not re-enter the church until directed to by a Sentinel, Usher, or Function Leader who has been cleared to do so by the Fire Department.

The above is the answer to your Fire question. Let’s hope and pray we never have to use this procedure.

Stay safe everyone.
