If you have ever wondered about getting involved with the Early Response Team, so you can assist survivors of natural disasters in their time of need, you must go through training through the United Methodist Church. You can take trips with other churches, too, once certified.
Early Response Training (ERT) is scheduled for Saturday, August 19, 8:30am-4:30pm, at Powell United Methodist Church (8-hour Basic Class Training).
Cost is $40 (or $25 for recertification).
ERT volunteers provide a Christian presence while taking steps to prevent further damage to a family’s personal property, tarping, debris removal, and cleaning out flooded homes.
