As you put the emergency kit together for your couple’s wedding, remember to include the items that you need to include in the emergency kit to protect you, your team, and your company.
- A document that details the “who,” “what,” “where,” and “when” details of your wedding
- A document with the “day of” contact information for your couple, wedding party, and wedding vendors. This should include the names, cell phone numbers and e-mail addresses.
- A list of the locations where your wedding party is staying the day of.
- A list of the local medical services, such as local hospitals with 24-hour emergency rooms, the closest pharmacy, and possibly the closest nonemergency clinic. If you have a pet on-site at the wedding, you have the location of the closest veterinary clinic.
- The “day of” details regarding the location of the emergency kit, security, exits, exits for people with disabilities, the building evacuation area – this is where everyone should gather once you exit the building. This document should also include the roll call list, the location of the AED unit (defibrillator), the fire extinguisher, and where everyone should go if you need to shelter in place.
- The certificates of insurance for all of the vendors involved with the wedding.
- An “Emergency Communications Chain.” Many call this a “Calling Tree.”
NOTE – All of this information should be stored on your tablets and devices, and you should have a printed copy on-site.
Best wishes on a safe and healthy wedding!
Love and Soul Always, Kawania
