UNY ERT Basic Liverpool
UMCOR’s Early Response Team training equips individuals to prepare for, respond to, and recover from a disaster. When disaster strikes, Early Response Teams (ERTs) fill a specific need to clean out flood-damaged homes, remove debris, place tarps on homes, and otherwise help to prevent further damage. The work provides a caring Christian presence in times of disaster. The ERT badge is issued by UMCOR to applicants over the age of 18 after the successful completion of an ERT course and a background check. Badges are valid for 3 years.
