UPCOMING UMCOR CLASSES on "ERT" (Early Response Team)


            An Early Response Team (ERT) is a group of UMCOR trained volunteers responding to disasters.  Although not first responders, ERT teams arrive soon after a disaster to remove debris, tarp roofs, and remove water logged drywall and insulation ("mucking out") after a flood.  There are two upcoming classes in southern Indiana, one for those who have an expired ERT certification and the other for those who have never taken the class.  Both classes are taught by veteran instructor Bill Amerson, who has also led several ERT teams.  Following a police check, picture IDs will be mailed to those who complete the class.
