UNY ERT Course Mohawk Valley
Floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, snowstorms, and fires impact an entire community causing physical, economic, and emotional damage. United Methodists Early Response Teams (ERT) arrive soon after first responder professionals to provide a caring Christian presence in the aftermath of a disaster. ERT help listen to the survivors. Further tasks might include assessing damage, tarping roofs, removing damaged household items, cleaning, and removing wet sheetrock. Teams stay for three days, replaced by another team as needed. Teams are self-sufficient and self-sustaining. Upper New York conference maintains several tool trailers. Individual team members pay for their own personal protective gear, food, and transportation.
