Help after Disasters: Early Response Training

Flooding after Hurricane Matthew reminds us to be prepared to help.The ability to care about people and desire to help is the primary qualification, and a willingness to learn and follow directions. No one needs to be strong or skilled to do this work -- giving TLC, cleaning up, preparing for repairs --  most of us can do this with training and on-site guidance. 

$55 includes morning refreshments and lunch.

More information contact Steve Cass, trainer, slcass2@verizon.net 

United Methodist Early Response Teams (ERT) provides a caring Christian presence to storm and disaster victims. Training provides the opportunity to respond if your schedule allows. Teams provide many types of help: listening to residents, needs assessment, debris removal, sanitizing, flood “mucking out,” etc. Response is local or regional for three days. Training is beneficial even if you do not participate on a team.
