Early Response Team Training (10/1/2022)
October 1, 2022 @ 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
UMCOR provides several courses for Early Response Teams (ERTs) through a network of badged local trainers. ERTs fill a specific need in the early days after a disaster to 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.
ERT Classes help participants understand how United Methodists are involved during a disaster, how we get prepared for a disaster, and what we can do when a disaster strikes.
Basic ERT training is required to receive an ERT badge and become part of a fully certified team. You will be badged after your background check is complete.
