TERT - History



September 2001
Representatives of six (6) PSAP’s (Public Safety Answering Point) from across North Carolina met in Wilmington, North Carolina.  (Greensboro / Guilford, Durham, Raleigh, Fayetteville and Johnston County)

These PSAP’s represented a cross section of centers from across the state (high population bases, major travel thoroughfares, communities with a basis in state / federal operations, large research facilities and / or military bases, etc).

The original communications center representatives met with the NC NENA Chapter Executive officers in late September 2001. NC NENA Executive Officers liked the idea and then met with full NC NENA Board to adopt TERT as an official NC NENA taskforce.

The following groups of people were involved in getting the concept off the ground:

NC NENA Board of Officers
NC NENA Chapter TERT Steering Committee
NC Office of Emergency Management
