Emergency Response Training

One of the primary ways the Central Texas Conference responds to disasters is via our Early Response Teams (ERT). The Central Texas Conference ERTs respond to disasters within the conference, as well as to help other areas facing disasters. The mission of an Early Response Team is to provide a caring presence in the aftermath of a disaster, under very specific guidelines that enables a team to be productive and caring while causing no further harm or being a burden to the affected community.

If you are called to serve as a member of the CtC ERt, you must register and participate in one of the trainings taught throughout the year. These trainings are taught by "authorized" UMCOR trainers, and team members are given authorized ERT ID badges from UMCOR as evidence of completing the training. The topics covered in the class include the who, what, when, where and how of doing disaster response ministry, as expected to accomplish in the face of a disaster. All volunteers must have completed the ERT training, in addition to Ministry Safe.

If interested in completing the requirements to be an ERT member, please contact Michelle Clark for more information.
