The National Joint TERT Initiative (NJTI) is a partnership between APCO and NENA that has worked to develop the many facets of a Telecommunicator Emergency Response Taskforce (TERT) program and to help states develop who do not yet have an active TERT program. 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.
The organization has posted its latest newsletter online – click here to read it. If you’re not familiar with the concept of TERT, click the link and find out more. It takes the concept of tactical incident dispatchers supporting local and mutual aid incidents and brings it to the national level to support dispatch centers that are in need of immediate assistance during disasters.
