ERT Training January 9
There will be an Early Response Team training event on Saturday, January 19 at Old River Terrace UMC in Channelview from Time: 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM.
The mission of an early response team is to provide a caring Christian presence in the aftermath of disaster. The team is neither a first response group of emergency workers nor a recovery, rebuild or repair team. Rather, teams are trained and equipped to enter a disaster site soon after one strikes. They are self-sustaining and have their own transportation, fuel, food, equipment, and lodging already covered. They bring, in the name of Christ, immediate assistance to ensure no further damage is done.
The Texas Annual Conference, in partnership with UMCOR, is now conducting Early Responder Training using approved UMCOR curriculum, as well as certified ERT-trainers. Early responders representing our conference must have this training to be certified.
