Happening In Your State
TERT news from every state
Arkansas has been very busy! We
just completed our Arkansas TERT Mission Ready Packages and they have
been submitted! We are almost complete with our checklist to become a
deployable state! We are presenting a TERT awareness course at our AR
APCO/NENA State Conference in April and will begin planning basic and
team leader training shortly after! If any state goes to work on MRPs
and need assistance, let us know and we are happy to help!
recently added new member agencies, we currently have 55 member
agencies that participate in IL-TERT. On March 8th, IL-TERT trained
19 Telecommunicators bringing our deployable team members up to
almost 180 team members.
NHTERT will be involved in these
