Early Response Team Training Description

UMCORThis class will provide you with the Basic information you need about Early Response Teams.

Early Response Teams (ERTs) 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.

ERTs are not a first-response group of emergency workers, nor are they recovery, rebuild, or repair teams. Under very specific guidelines, ERTs assist survivors, without causing further harm or being a burden to the affected community.

All ERT members are trained by authorized UMCOR trainers, and are given identification badges as evidence of successful completion of the basic class.

MinistrySafe Requirements

A background check and MinistrySafe certification is required for all participants. Once completed, download the “MinistrySafe Verification Form” from our website.

The form must be signed by your church’s ministry safe administrator. Bring this form with you and give it to your instructor.
