Early Response Teams (ERTs) fill a specific need in the early days after a disaster to clean out flood-damaged homes, remove debris, place tarps on homes, and otherwise help to prevent further damage, while providing a caring, Christian presence. This class will provide you with the basic information you need about Early Response Teams.

ERTs are not a first-response group of emergency workers, nor are they recovery, rebuild or repair teams. Under very specific guidelines, ERTs assist survivors, without causing further harm or being a burden to the affected community. All ERT members are trained by authorized UMCOR trainers and are given identification badges as evidence of successful completion of the basic class.

We will begin promptly at 9 a.m. and dismiss at 4 p.m. Your $35 registration will include lunch, materials and background check.
