The Desert Southwest Early Response Team (ERT) has responded to disasters outside and within the bounds of the annual conference. The next training event is August 11 in Prescott, Arizona.
ERT mission teams respond to natural disasters across the country, bringing Christian presence of hope when a home has been damaged. We remove debris and salvage belongings to create a safe, sanitary, and secure home. Other times we work in a disaster center helping them make necessary decisions or meeting their special needs. We work with many other religious, government, and secular organizations to mitigate their losses.
