UMCOR Early Response Training: February 9, 2019

So many disaster stricken communities need our help – are you feeling led to get involved? This training may be just what you're looking for. Participants of the Early Response Team (ERT) Training learn the basics of disaster response, including how to stabilize and secure homes safely, and how to work effectively with survivors and others on the response team. This standardized class is required for the basic ERT UMCOR identification badge.

What is an ERT? 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. Teams may be needed locally, in other parts of the conference, nation, or world. 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. ERTs require an invitation to travel to another district, conference, or jurisdiction. All ERT members are trained by authorized UMCOR trainers, and are given identification badges as evidence of successful completion of the basic class.

The Early Response Team (Basic) training class costs of $35 per person includes: training manual, ID badge, t-shirt, lunch and morning snacks, plus $41 for online background check and Safe Sanctuary training.

The California-Nevada Conference of the United Methodist Church is committed to ensuring that we provide safe places of worship and fellowship to everyone we serve.

Safe Gatherings is an online abuse prevention program that screens and educates staff and volunteers to help prevent abuse of children, youth, and vulnerable adults in group settings.

The California-Nevada Conference and our congregations utilize Safe Gatherings to enable our churches, Volunteers, camps, and affiliated groups to meet their screening and training responsibilities for those who work with children, youth, and vulnerable adults.

Staff and volunteers who serve in ministry to these groups complete the approval process every 3 years to maintain their approval status. Individuals who complete an application, background check, and the online training may be approved and authorized to work with those groups in any church-related setting.

Screening includes obtaining background checks and professional references. The training is comprehensive and customized for our organization. Applicants may complete the online training modules at their own pace. The training typically takes about 45 minutes to complete.
