Early Response Team Training
Early Response Teams (ERT) are specially trained teams that offer assistance soon after the disaster strikes. They generally do clean up work and tasks required to stop further damage from being done, e.g. putting tarps on damaged roofs. They might do minor repairs that help make homes habitable, but they do not do extensive repairs or reconstruction (that is the job for Long Term Recovery).
A prerequisite for ERT certification is to have completed at background check through UMCOR. Instructions will be given during training.
The $30 cost of the training includes all training materials, snack and lunch, T-shirt, background check and identification badge. Please come prepared to pay by check or cash on the day of training. Nobody will be denied training due to inability to pay.
