Early Response Team Training

September 16, 2019

Emergency Response Teams (ERTs) go into an affected area after the first responders have secured the area and invited them in. Disaster Response works with and deploys ERTs. Mission Operations trains and re-certifies ERTs. Their purpose is to assist survivors to be “safe, sanitary, and secure” which includes being a compassionate listener as survivors tell their story. Work may include removing debris, mucking out, tarping a roof, etc. We are now offering just-in-time ERT training online. To find out more information, click here.
