In order to better manage volunteers and resources, FEMA is finalizing a guideline on credentialing volunteers for large-scale disasters. The federal guidelines indicate that 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 member for credentialing and will focus on the safety, work, and ministry of Lutherans as Early Responders.

LERT trainings currently scheduled for 2016. Registration begins at 9:00 am; instruction is from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm.
