Basic ERT Training
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 certificiation.
What is an ERT? Early Response Teams fill a specific need in the early days after a disaster to clean out flood-damanged homes, remove debris, place tarps on homes, and otherwise help to prevent further damage, while providing a caring Christian presence. ERT’s are not a first-responders groups, nor are they recovery, rebuild or repair teams. ERTs must be certified to work on these missions.
