ERT Deployment to Louisiana

ERT Deployment to Louisiana

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.
