Ladder Restrictions

Restrictions are now in place when using a ladder on Church property. There must always be two people present at all times. Under no circumstance can this directive be breached.

It is recommended to use the extension ladder as it can be rested against the building/wall whereas the step ladder stands alone. Thank you for your cooperation.
