Basic ERT Member Training (8 hrs.) Cost: $10 per person
Saturday, September 8, 8:30 AM-4:30 PM [Hopkinsville First UMC]
For ERT-Trained Members whose badges have expired and persons who have had no previous training. Participants learn the basics of disaster response, including how to stabilize and secure homes safely, and how to work effectively with survivors and others on the response team. This standardized class is required for the basic ERT UMCOR identification badge. A background check and Safe Sanctuaries Training are also required for this course. Per the background check, each registrant will be provided a secure link to the service being used by UMCOR to input the necessary information for the check. There is no cost to the registrant for the check. Their information is secure and we get the pass/no pass information from the service without any of the registrant’s personal information. Safe Sanctuary training can be done online –or- if training has been completed in the last two years, a letter or copy of the participant’s certificate will be sufficient.
