Early Response TeamsMore about ERTs

  • We are United Methodist Volunteers in South Carolina who are dedicated to showing the love of Jesus to others in the aftermath of a disaster.
  • We have teams of 6-12 members and regional coordinators who cover our state from border to border.
  • All members receive 8 hours of basic disaster training, plus First Aid and CPR.
  • People trained in chainsaw safety, CISM and EMS accompany each team.
  • Volunteers are rotated in and out every 3 to 4 days due to the intense physical and mental stress associated with disaster response.
