APCO Announces ANSI Approval of Telecommunicator Emergency Response Taskforce (TERT) Deployment

The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International received final approval from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) on July 14, 2015 for an American National Standard (ANS) that identifies deployment requirements for telecommunicator emergency response teams.

The revision and re-designation process occurs every five years for all American National Standards. This ensures that all standards are up to date with current trends in operations, training and technology.

This document is provided to assist Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and governing 9-1-1 authorities with the information required for developing, training, equipping and deploying a standardized TERT team. TERT is the concept of communications-specific mutual aid between PSAPs to provide trained PSAP personnel during emergency situations.

“This update continues APCO’s legacy of providing support to interoperability at multiple levels. Providing guidance for the rapid deployment of trained personnel during major emergencies and the ability to share resources are two of the most important factors in emergency communications” said John Wright, president of APCO International.

APCO/NENA ANS 1.105.2-2015 can be downloaded from APCO's web site here
