GR District: Early Response Team (ERT) Training

Early Response Team Training Basic Course

Early Response Teams (ERT) are an active part of the United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) program. The ERT program trains individuals to go into a community or area where a natural disaster has struck to help families begin the process of putting their lives back in order. ERT’s follow emergency responder’s work and the authorization of the District Emergency Management Agency.

The work of the ERT is to “Be a Caring Christian Presence in the aftermath of a disaster.” This happens through working with families to make their home and yard safe by picking up debris, tarping roofs, removing and sorting items that were harmed, tearing out damaged carpet and dry wall. It may also include mucking out a basement, or cleaning where mold has begun to grow. It is a ministry of caring for those who have been affected by a disaster through offering help which begins their journey back to normal. If you believe that working for three days of intense sharing, caring, sorting, sifting and lifting sounds like a ministry for you, then consider this training event.

If you have already taken the basic course, but your certification has lapsed, this course will cover your re-certification.
