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 2015. Registration begins at 8:30 am; instruction is from 9 am to noon.

LERT TrainingChildren are sometimes the forgotten victims in disasters, but because of their young age and lack of experience in dealing with negative situations, it is critical that they learn how to process the events they have gone through. That is why LCC is holding a special workshop on “Helping Children Heal After a Disaster”. This workshop is essential for any LERT volunteers working with children whether providing child care for children while parents salvage what they can from the rubble to being a Comfort Dog or Kare-9 Handler visiting with children.

Instructors for this workshop are Dr. Lauren Wellen & Kathleen (Kathy) Hundt Terzinski, MA/LPC/QMHP. Dr. Wellen, is Professor of Literacy and Early Childhood at Concordia University Chicago. Working with children following a disaster has been a special interest of hers for a long time.

Kathy Hundt Terzinski is a fellow LERT Volunteer and Comfort Dog Handler. Kathy served as the Mental Health Coordinator for the first Camp Dorothy at St. John Lutheran Church in Moore, OK last summer where she gained first-hand experience of mental health care for children following a disaster.
