We have received word that the Louisiana Conference have started registering Early Response Trained teams to respond to damage by Hurricane Isaac. If you have a current ERT badge (ie. have completed the UMCOR ERT course in the last three years), please start making plans within your local churches by beginning to form teams and collect materials. Please visit the registration page at the Louisiana Conference website by clicking here or going to: http://www.la-umc.org/pages/detail/1761
There is a cost associated with the response effort. Teams are needed for construction and gutting of houses. Please check the above link for more details.
If you have any questions, please contact me at email@example.com
