Trinity's Early Response Team Gets Training

Bob and Myrt Dorroh organized a CPR training class for Trinity's Early Response Team earlier this month. Participants learned how to help adults, youth, babies and those in wheelchairs, as well as choking victims and people who may be suffering from a stroke. They gained a wealth of very helpful information that they hope to never need to use!

Early Response Teams, or ERTs, are not a first-response group, but fill a specific need in the early days after a disaster, such as cleaning out flood-damaged homes, removing debris, and otherwise helping prevent further damage while providing a caring Christian presence.

Following the Colorado floods in September 2013, Trinity's ERT helped Estes Park UMC clean up and make minor repairs in and around their property and provided prayers for all the families effected.

For more information on becoming involved with Trinity's ERT group, please contact the church office at 303-839-1493.
