He thought Bernie was a NM before. Alex cried a bit. SHANNON – update and make sure people get them. KMs to Train people up and go through EVERYTHING when inducting people. Locking front door while people are in – fire people say to make sure staff member there to let people out, but we are fine in general due to the massive church and downstairs fire exits.

The forest's phone number is really hard to find on the website. Is the plan to make little cards to hand out to vollies? If so what about these? ... 3636#13636

Also the left hand toilet downstairs doesn't lock.
That is bad.

Also. I think the kitchen crew should get a microwave that is less scary.
