We have received word that the Louisiana Conference has started registering Emergency Response Trained teams to respond to damage by Hurricane Isaac. If you have a current ERT badge (ie. have completed the UMCOR ERT course in the last three years), please start making plans within your local churches by beginning to form teams and collect materials.
There is a cost associated with the response effort. Teams are needed for construction and gutting of houses. Please check the above link for more details.
