Volunteers can serve on the make-ready team at 4-5 pm, the truck team at 5-7:00 pm, or both!

Early Response Team Training for Disaster Preparedness

Early Response Teams (ERTs) are specially trained to offer assistance after a disaster strikes, helping those made vulnerable by floods or fires to clean up, make homes habitable, or make minor repairs to prevent further damage, ERTs are an essential part of disaster response and recovery. If you have the skills for this work and a passion for helping people, join the Capital District for the ERT Basic Course by attending a two-part hybrid training. First Church is hosting an in-person practical session on October 22 from 8:00AM-1:00PM in our parking lot. To find the next online training, contact Mark Steves at email@example.com.
