Natural disasters continue to plague our nation at a rapid and unprecedented pace. Much help is needed on many fronts, even a year or more after the incident has passed. Work continues in Southern Texas under Lutheran Disaster Response ministries a full year after Hurricane Harvey ravaged the area, and hurricane season is again upon us.
Woodbury Lutheran Church is offering a day-long LERT training facilitated by LCMS Disaster Response on Saturday, September 29, from 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. at their Valley Creek Campus in Woodbury. This training is modeled on FEMA training for disaster preparedness.
Participants will become confident in being ready to answer the call to respond, and will receive a certificate of participation, a workbook, volunteer credentials and a safety vest.
Morning coffee, lunch and a short afternoon break will be provided to all registrants. We are sorry we cannot accommodate special dietary requirements and ask that you bring your own food if you have dietary needs such as gluten-free or vegetarian.
