Washington APCO/NENA TERT Team Member

10/24/2022

 

8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

 


Details

One of the greatest challenges for 9-1-1 centers during a disaster is maintaining adequate staffing levels. To address this problem and expand on some individual state initiatives in place, APCO International and NENA have joined hands to develop more widely the Telecommunicator Emergency Response Taskforce (TERT).

 

TERT involves a comprehensive program that includes assistance to individual states in developing programs that would lead to the establishment of predetermined and selected trained teams of individuals who can be mobilized quickly and deployed to assist communications centers during disasters.

 

TERT Member is a Public Safety Call taker and/or Dispatcher who has been trained to deploy to disaster areas to assist and relieve affected PSAPs
