Interested in helping after a disaster? Register for Early Response Team Training on Sat., Oct. 15, 2016 from 9am-4pm at Brentwood UMC.

An Early Response Team (ERT) is a self-contained team that enters a disaster area by invitation. ERTs provide emergency repairs and/or assistance to help people be safe, sanitary and secure until insurance and other help are available.

United Methodist ERT’s offer a Christian presence and are trained to provide various types of physical, emotional and spiritual assistance to disaster survivors.  ERT’s are taught the types, phases and levels of disaster as well as the unique role and purpose of “early response.” Training also includes team leadership, team needs and equipment, spiritual and emotional care, faith-based disaster response, chainsaw safety, how to tarp roofs safely and how we coordinate with United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) and United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).
