I regularly tell people that there are more things that can happen at your church then someone coming to cause harm with a weapon. One of the things that regularly happens at churches all over America are medical incidents. A medical incident could be a variety of situations from a skinned knee in the children’s department to a heart attack in the worship center and every other incident that you can imagine. Here in Colorado we have often seen visitors pass out in the service because they are not used to the altitude and have not stayed hydrated.
I was involved in a medical emergency this last weekend at my own church. We have trained well on what we need to do, how we communicate with each other, and what we need to do to get EMS to the incident as quickly as possible, if necessary. There is some training that should be mandatory for everyone serving on the team, and medical emergency is one of those trainings. You can’t prepare for every instance that may happen, but if you have a foundational plan of action you can be better prepared and have the right mindset of what needs to happen regardless of the medical emergency that happens.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
