L.E.R.T Volunteer Disaster Preparedness Training Event

08:30 am to 04:30 pm

Trinity Lutheran Church

Utica, MI 48317

Event Description: 

A disaster may happen anywhere at any time. Are your prepared to respond? Join us at the Trinity Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT) volunteer training program provided by LCMS Office of National Mission. Together we will walk through a simple training program designed to help you serve as a trained Christian volunteer when a disaster strikes.

This training is part of a Synod-wide disaster response program, facilitated by a network of district Disaster Response Coordinators and Teams, under the direction of LCMS Disaster Response. At the close of the program, you will receive a training certification document and a LERT volunteer credential photo ID issued by LCMS Disaster Response which will allow access into closed disaster areas.

In the chaos of disaster, it’s important to stay focused on the task at hand. This training will help you focus on the most important things to remember as you prepare for or respond to a disaster in your community or beyond. At the center of our LERT volunteer training is one thing – MERCY! Christ’s mercy is the basis for everything we say and do.

Showing mercy to everyone connects the hurting and helpless with the gospel of Jesus. Disasters span the globe: no nation, state, community or person is exempt from disaster. An unparalleled opportunity stands before us to share Christ by sharing Christian care in times of disaster. Christian care crosses the boundaries of culture, language, social class, skin color and religion to reach the hearts of hurting men, women and children.

This 8-hour training event will equip you to be an effective volunteer should a disaster strike your community, state or nation.
