MO District Hosting Disaster Response Training Sessions

LERT certifies volunteers to FEMA standards, and makes them eligible for access to federal disaster sites. Across Missouri, these trained volunteers are ready to step in when the unthinkable happens. The district’s goal is to have teams in every pocket of Missouri, so LERT volunteers can serve locally, without the need for travel or extensive lodging.

These 6 to 8 hour trainings are $35 and include lunch and a LERT vest. These courses will cover:

  1. An introduction to the LCMS Disaster Response program
  2. Congregation preparedness
  3. Lutheran Early Response Teams

Anyone can attend the training session but only LCMS members who are 18 years or older, however, receive certification as LCMS volunteers.
