Early Response Teams (ERTs) fill a specific need in the early hours and 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.
 
Basic ERT Member Training (8 hours)
Participants learn the basics of disaster response, including how to stabilize and secure homes safely, and how to work effectively with survivors and others on the response team. This standardized class is required for the basic ERT UMCOR identification badge.
 
Please contact Larry Stone if you are interested in taking the training to become UMCOR ERT certified.
