2015 Basic LERT Certifications Dates Have Been Set
Due to federal guidelines, volunteers responding to a disaster should be trained and certified. LCC is providing training for Lutheran Early Response Teams (LERT) throughout our district. Should a disaster strike these teams would be put on call and may be asked to deploy in 72 hours or less to the disaster site.
This training will prepare team members for credentialing and will focus on the safety, work, and ministry of Lutherans as Early Responders.
So, are you interested in joining LCC in ministry through disaster response? LCC has finalized several opportunities for you to become LERT certified in order to become the hands and feet of Christ to those in need. The four scheduled dates are February 21, April 25, September 19 and September 26 from 9 a.m.- Noon at various locations.
The three-hour training takes you through the fundamental guidelines and procedures of disaster response. The fee is $35, which covers instruction, the training manual, LERT ID card and LERT vest.
Walk-ins are accepted but space is limited. Sign-up today to join us in spreading the mercy, compassion, proclamation and presence of Christ in the midst of chaos.
