Evacuation
In the event a building evacuation situation, staff will escort all children in Youth Center and Child Watch (if open at the time) to the designated outdoor safe area. An announcement will be made for all other members and guests in the building to follow in an orderly fashion. Parents will be allowed to check out their child once all children are safe.

Parents will be allowed to check out their child once the weather situation has passed and everyone is deemed safe.
