ERT Training

September 04, 2017

The Louisiana Conference is constantly in need of certified ERT responders.

Early Response Teams (ERT's) 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.

The next basic ERT Training will be January 19th at Warren United Methodist Church in Lake Charles.

If you have ever wondered what it means to serve on an ERT team, listen and watch as Rev. Bob Deich explains what it's like to serve as the hands and feet of Christ and to provide a caring Christian presence in the aftermath of disaster.
