AmeriCorps St. Louis Emergency Response Team
Are you ready for your next adventure? Spend a year assisting disaster-affected communities, fighting wildfires, and conserving natural resources with a team of passionate people committed to making a real difference. The frequency and severity of natural disasters continue to increase, yet most citizens are still unprepared when disaster strikes. The Emergency Response Team (ERT), previously Safety-Service Corps, is a multi-functional rapid deployment group that has been called out nationally to floods, tornadoes, wildfires, hurricanes, search and rescue, ice storms, and terrorist attacks. When not involved in disaster response, the ERT assists various environmental stewardship partners with trail maintenance, habitat restoration, prescribed burning, and other natural resource projects.
