Disaster Response Training

Oak Grove will host an Early Response Team training on Saturday, March 10, from 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.  Those trained will receive a United Methodist Committee on Relief badge that will allow them entry to crisis areas to respond in the first days after the a major disaster.  This process is a part of the national effort to certify early response volunteers across multiple agencies and was born out of lessons learned from 9/11.  The cost of the training is $10, which cover training materials.   Participants will also complete an online background check which will cost an additional $10.
