We received a request for ERT assistance in Louisiana around the Lake Charles area devastated by flooding. Our bishop has approved our deployment. The principle work is tarping, debris removal and mucking houses.
To deploy you need a current UMCOR ERT badge (expiration date is printed on the badge). As your current badge is expired according to our records, you will need to complete a recertification class. Polly is planning to offer a refresher class as the team deploys, if that is your need. Also, an online class will be offered at time to be determined. Attached is the ERT COVID Deployment Plan.
Our plan is to deploy a series of teams later this month through at least July. We need persons to lead teams and work on teams.
If you are available, please contact me or Polly Turner () with your information and the dates you are available. Once we have the leaders identified with dates, you will be contacted by the team leader.
Thanks for your willingness to serve.
