On Saturday, January 22, 2022 we are offering a Basic ERT training. The training will be at First UMC Houma 6109 LA 311 Houma, LA 70360 from 8 A.M. to 3:30 P.M. The $25 registration fee includes lunch and a t-shirt.

Early Response Teams (ERT) fill a specific need in the early days after a disaster to clean out flood-damaged homes, remove debris, place tarps on homes, and otherwise help to prevent further damage, while providing a caring Christian presence.  ERT's are not the first-response group of emergency workers, nor are they recovery, rebuild, or repair teams.  Under very specific guidelines, ERT's assist survivors, without causing further harm or being a burden to the affected community.

UMCOR’s Basic Training is a comprehensive course in working with survivors to help prevent further damage to their homes after a storm. Upon completion of the basic class and the proper background check, you will become a Certified ERT and will receive an ERT badge. Certification makes you eligible to participate in most ERT deployments. Your certification must be renewed every three years.
