I was called out to aircraft. Provisioning opened the forward service door while the emergency slide girt bar was still attached to the floor. The slide was sitting half in the aircraft and half on the catering truck. I called back to our maintenance room in order to get a new slide coming out while I took the old slide out. I received the new slide from a fellow mechanic and proceeded to install it on the door.
