Our main concern.
Although ACTS wants you to have a fun and educational tour program experience, our main desire is to see that you have a safe trip and return home safely. Since 1984, we have been blessed to have run thousands of tours with a strong safety record. Your parents have put a lot of trust in us to take good care of you. Sometimes we might even seem stricter than your parents would be. But thats O.K. because we want you to get back to them safely. In order to promote safety on our programs, American Christian Tours has put in place several policies and procedures:
At the beginning of the tour, your ACTS EPL will provide your group with an orientation that includes a number of important safety announcements. One of our main themes is that students are never to be alone, you always need to be in a group. It is one of the things that we potentially will send a student home for - we take it that seriously.
Our Education Program Leaders have been trained to always be aware of their surroundings as they lead your group. They will use crosswalks and walk you to the right on sidewalks and stairways. They will not allow you to do things like creative aerial jumps off of marble steps at the Lincoln Memorial - first, because it is dangerous, second, because it is disrespectful. Safety is their main concern.
Each program participant is provided with an ACTS badge and lanyard that must be worn throughout the entire tour. It provides each person with our toll-free number and allows a participant to access our ACTS office 24 hours a day.
Each ACTS program provides a number of chaperones for every so many students registered. The exact number varies with each program but it provides a responsible adult that you will be assigned to in a group.
Vendors and Hotels
ACTS takes time to research each vendor, restaurant and hotel. There are a set of guidelines we go through when choosing places to include on our tour program that provide our participants with a high level of quality and safety. We also choose motorcoaches that provide trained drivers, safe and comfortable equiptment, and we follow all government guidelines with regards to motorcoach hours and procedures.
We hire bonded and licensed security chaperones to ensure the safety and security of our program participants at night in the hotels we use. These chaperones will monitor your hallways making sure that you have a good night of rest from evening until dawn the next day.
Doctors on Call
ACTS has worked to provide doctors on call that can come to our hotels, if necessary, to provide medical care. This service is available at the major cities that we visit. Your EPL is also provided with emergency contact information to hospitals, clinics, etc.
