Sign Up for Disaster Response Training: Early Response Team (ERT) - September 7, 2019

You are invited to offer a caring Christian presence in the aftermath of a disaster by participating in Early Response Team training at Galloway UMC on Saturday, September 7, 2019 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. 

The Early Response Team (ERT) is neither a first response group of emergency workers nor a recovery rebuild or repair team   In the early days after a disaster the ERT fills such specific needs as taking steps to prevent further damage to a family’s personal property, managing donated material,  gathering information and offering a listening presence that helps survivors begin to heal.

The $40 registration fee includes manual, lunch, background check, and leader expenses. For ERT certification, participants must attend the entire course. This training will have hands-on activities, so it is recommended that you dress comfortably in layers.   Click here for details and registration.
