Early Response Teams

Early Response Teams bring a caring, Christian presence to the survivors of hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, fires and other natural disasters.

Teams assists survivors by:

  • Listening to their Stories
  • Preparing the home for a rebuild
  • Salvaging everything possible
  • Tarping to prevent further damage
  • Minimizing mold growth

Teams are United Methodists and friends who are called to mission to devastated communities, growing spiritually together when serving others in a time of need. Team members, all 18 and older, are trained by certified UMCOR trainers, complete a background check online, badged, and then are invited to respond to disasters throughout the US and some outlying territories. Their primary objective is to be a caring Christian and to help survivors take the next steps toward recovery.
