Early Response Team (ERT) Training helps equip individuals and teams to respond in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. The cost for the training is $25 per participant. At the training, participants will receive an ERT training manual and, upon completing the course, will receive an UMCOR ID Badge and a conference ERT t-shirt. Lunch is provided. An UMCOR background check is
required before receiving a badge. Information for submitting background checks will be sent to participants.
There must be at least ten (10) participants to schedule an ERT class. Participants can come from other churches within the community/district/conference. The Conference will help promote online and publish a registration page.
Host church must provide a classroom-style venue, access to projector and screen (instructor will bring own laptop or thumb drive), and one rectangular table for demonstration purposes. Host church will provide simple working lunch (sandwiches, pizza, tea, lemonade — reimbursable at $7.00/person). Pre-registration is required.
