Early Response Teams (ERTs) are often the first people on the ground providing aid after a disaster strikes. Their mission is to create a caring presence. They immediately help to clean things up and make homes safe, sanitary and secure. ERT volunteers must go through ERT training with UMCOR. This ensures that they will operate under specific guidelines that allow them to be productive and caring while causing no further harm or being a burden.
Early Response Team training will be held on June 8, 2013 at Fishing Creek Salem UMC in Etters PA.
Registration deadline is May 31, 2013. Please complete the attached registration form and submit it to Ken Mengel at the address listed on the registration form.
Please note that background checks and Safe sanctuaries training is required prior to taking this class.
