LERT Training at St.Matthew in Hawthrone Woods
January 19 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
Lutheran Church Charities will provide a LERT (Lutheran Early Response Team) Basic training program Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019
training will be at: St. Matthew Lutheran Church 24500 N. Old McHenry Rd. Hawthorn Woods, IL 60047 In order to better manage volunteers and resources, FEMA has developed a guideline on credentialing volunteers for large-scale disasters. The federal guidelines indicate that volunteers responding to a disaster should be trained and certified. LCC is providing training for Lutheran Early Response Teams (LERT) throughout our district. Should a disaster strike, these teams would be put on call and may be asked to deploy in 72 hours or less to the disaster site. This training will prepare team members for credentialing and focus on the safety, work, and ministry of Lutherans as Early Responders. The registration cost for new LERT volunteers will be $35.00 and for LERT team members attending this course to renew your ID, the registration cost is only $10.00. We ask that you wear your ID and bring your vest if you have attended before. When you submit your online registration and receive your registration confirmation number you will also be requested to fill out an online LCC NID Liability & Medical Form for 2019. This form only needs to be completed once a year.
Registration: 8:00 – 8:30 am Training: 8:30 am – 1:00 pm Continental breakfast and snacks will be provided.
