US Disaster Response Training
UMCOR trains people at every level—local church, district, and conference—to respond to disasters. For example, UMCOR can help your conference draft, revise, and test your Conference Disaster Response Plan. UMCOR also trains Early Response Teams, which can be requested by conference Disaster Response Coordinators in times of need. These training programs enable United Methodists to bring hope to those who are suffering in the United States. Visit UMCOR’s volunteer page if you’re wondering how you can make a difference.
UMCOR provides training for Early Response Teams; however, United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) coordinates these volunteers. If you’re interested in participating in a short-term volunteer team, please contact your jurisdictional or conference UMVIM coordinator.
