ERT Training - June 15

posted on May 14

This class will provide you with the Basic information you need about Early Response Teams.

Early Response Teams (ERTs) fill a specific need in the 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.

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.  

Our training will be held at Evolution UMC, 202 W Hyde Park Ave., St. Joseph, Missouri, 64401, on June 15, 2019. We will begin promptly at 9 a.m. and dismiss at 5 p.m. Your $35 registration will include background check, lunch and materials.  

It is ideal for each church to have ERT trained volunteers who are able to respond to needs across the Conference. Under the UMCOR system, early responders cannot help unless they are trained.
