Early Response Team (ERT) training teaches how to assist survivors of natural disasters in their time of need by providing a Christian presence while taking steps to prevent further damage to a family's personal property including debris removal, cleaning out flooded homes and more. After completion of the 8 hour course, you will receive a badge from UMCOR, which is recognized by FEMA. There are 3 opportunities to take an ERT class over the next few months.
- Wednesday, July 10, Church of the Saviour in Montgomery
- Saturday, August 10, Hartzell UMC in Blue Ash
- Saturday, September 21, Grove City UMC in Grove City
A background check is required to receive an ERT badge from UMCOR. For more information, contact Kris Shoaf at kshoaf [at] wocumc.org.
