The Mission of an Early Response Team (ERT) is to provide a caring Christian presence in the aftermath of a disaster.

ERTs typically provide assistance after the “first responders” and before recovery and rebuilding. ERTs are assigned various tasks; usually relating to safety, mitigation of further damage to property, and cleanup tasks to assist the homeowner in preparation for rebuild. ERTs also sometimes serve in Local Assistance Centers providing comfort and items such as wildfire buckets to survivors. Always being the Caring Presence!

The Early Response Team (Basic) training class has space for 25 attendees. Cost of $20 per person includes: training manual, ID badge, t-shirt, lunch and snacks, plus $41 for Safe Gatherings online background check and Safe Sanctuaries Training ($41 to be paid online through Safe Gatherings website)
