Emergency Response Team Certification

On Saturday, June 24th, Asbury UMC, ABQ hosted an Emergency Response Team (ERT) Training program led by Co-Albuquerque District Coordinator & certified ERT Trainer, Hap Escue.  Participants came from Covenant, Mesa View, Mountainside, Asury, Deming and Las Cruces.  The group worked in teams to build the highest tower, learned how to tarp a roof and obtained hours of instruction.  We now have 12 additional certified ERT members.  Thanks to Hap for the enthusiasm and hard work.
