BE PREPARED WHEN DISASTER HAPPENS

 GET ERT CERTIFIED OR RECERTIFIED

 

The Susquehanna Conference Disaster Response ministries will be offering ERT (Early Response Team) training at 2 locations this fall. ERT Certification prepares you to be among the first responders in a disaster after emergency personnel complete their work. This UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) training is a great way to prepare for when disaster strikes our conference or its neighbors. No prior training or experience is required. Participants will need to have a background check done prior to receiving their badge but not prior to training. The training will be offered at Good Shepard UMC, Tyrone October 7th and at Dorrance UMC, Kingston November 4th. The cost of the training is $20.00 this will include your manual and lunch. The course can also be used to recertify ERT’s who’s certification has expired. Register ASAP as class size is limited. Send contact info to Curt Knouse- cknouse@susumc.org or 717-994-6294.
