You can put the global definition on top of the script; then it's valid 
for all handlers, like in the following snippet:

global gDB
global gLanguage

function checkCanDelete aTableName, aValue
   put false into vRC
   put "select f_has_children('" & aTableName & "' ,'" & aValue & "')" 
into vSQL
   put revDataFromQuery(,,gDB, vSQL) into vResult
