UMCOR Early Response Team (ERT):
“In the hours and days after disaster, those who survive are looking for anything to give them hope. ERT’s can provide the kind of immediate response that restores hope, builds faith, and encourages those who are looking to their neighbor for support.”
Basic ERT Member Training is eight hours and 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.
If your church, Sunday School class, or ministry is interested in hosting an ERT training, please contact the Conference Disaster Response Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (717) 766-7441, extension 3402
