Early Response Team (ERT) Training

Saturday, October 15, 2016, 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Early Response Teams provide a caring, Christian presence in the aftermath of a disaster. These teams are neither a first response group of emergency workers nor a recovery rebuild or repair team; rather they fill a specific need in the early days after a disaster to establish the presence of the church.

During the class, participants will learn important aspects of disaster spiritual and emotional care, organizational structure for the relief stage, team safety, ERT protocols and safe sanctuaries.

Trainer: Steve Ricketts
