Disaster Response – ERT

Join our team of volunteers who respond when natural disaster strikes in the Southeast. This team is called the SC Early Response Team (ERT) and they provide emergency repairs and/or assistance in the early days after a disaster to clean out flood-damaged homes, remove debris, place tarps on homes, and otherwise help to prevent further damage, while providing a caring Christian presence. They are trained to provide various types of physical, emotional, and spiritual assistance to disaster survivors.
