Want to learn what it takes to be a UMC ERT member? Those are the people that are first on the scene, primarily when natural disasters strike, locally and around the country. It is these specially trained people that lead disaster relief teams in the early stages of recovery and throughout the often times long-term recovery. This is an UMCOR certified training for Disaster Response ministries of Volunteers in Mission. Non-United Methodist participants are welcome but will not be badged or deployed through the UMCOR-UMVIM ministry network. Clearances are required on the day of the training. Early Response Team trainings will be offered from 9am - 5pm at the following locations. Visit http://www.wpaumc.org/disasterresponse to register.
