First D.E.R.T.
(Disaster Early Response Team)

We are calling on able-bodied persons to come and join this new team being organized to help our neighbors in the time of disaster.  It could be spring or fall flooding, which would involve helping needy people ‘muck out’ their basements.  It could be to help pick up after a tornado.  It could be anytime we are called to help.  The idea is to be early responders, i.e., coming in first to help as soon as it is safe to do so.

Volunteers’ names & contact information will be collected so that when the need is known, potential volunteers will be contacted to see if they are available to serve after any particular disaster in the area we serve.

Volunteer Training Session will be held:

Sunday, March 24, 2019, 1:00–2:30 pm, and

Saturday, March 30, 2019, 1:00–2:30 pm

In Bethany Hall at First Lutheran Church

301 W. Clark St. – Albert Lea, Minnesota.

Come to either session to learn more about this opportunity for service to ouir neighbors in Jesus’ Name.
