GFUMC will be hosting an UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) Basic ERT Member Training event on Saturday, January 5, 2019, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

In this training, participants will 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 class is required for the basic ERT UMCOR identification badge.

The cost of the training is $15.​ This includes ERT Manual, Badge, Lunch, and All Training Materials. (Optional $10 extra on the day of training for an Official ERT Team member T-shirt)  

Preregistration is required and space is limited to the first 20 registrants.


What is an Early Response Team (ERT)?

While ERTs are not first responders, they fill a specific need in the early days after a disaster to clean damaged homes, remove debris, place tarps on homes, and otherwise prevent further damage, while providing a caring Christian presence.
