CPR Defibrillators

At Frankfort United Methodist Church, we've installed an automated external defibrillator (AED) outside the sanctuary. Recognizing the vital importance of AED knowledge in emergencies, we're dedicated to equipping our community with life-saving skills. To further our commitment to safety and well-being, we encourage everyone to familiarize themselves with AED operation. As part of this effort, we've provided a helpful instructional video demonstrating proper usage.

Let's come together to empower each member with the knowledge to potentially save a life in times of need. Your readiness could be the difference between tragedy and triumph in a critical moment.

Narcan boxes

The Narcan boxes are now in front of both our United Methodist Churches in Frankfort & Elberta! We're immensely grateful for the opportunity to extend a helping hand to our communities during times of need. These Narcan boxes stand as a testament to our commitment to the health and well-being of all who call Frankfort and Elberta home. Together, let's continue to support and care for one another, ensuring that everyone feels safe and supported in our shared journey.
