Telecommunicator Emergency Response Training (TERT)
The purpose of this 5-hour course is to better prepare telecommunicators who will be part of a telecommunicator emergency response task-force (TERT) deployment team so they can respond to these challenging situations. Telecommunicators (public safety emergency call takers and dispatchers) in disaster areas have often worked tirelessly through extremely challenging working conditions. When telecommunicator deployment teams were sent to disaster areas, they were faced with difficult working conditions, increased environmental stress, and less than ideal accommodations.
