During the TX-TERT disaster deployment to Hurricane Isaac the response team waited over 25 hours to get the “go-ahead” from Louisiana Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) authorities. The disaster affected Telecommunicators had already worked over 40 hours without relief and their EMAC would not approve the request until the agency confirmed how they were going to house, feed and support the TX-TERT Team.  As you can imagine, the disaster affected agency’s personnel were exhausted and victims themselves, several had lost homes or had displaced family members. 

This incident became a priority for TX-TERT "Lessons Learned".  With your support the TX-TERT deployment trailer will allow:

  • Quick deployment for immediate relief of exhausted disaster affected 9-1-1 Telecommunicators
  • Support deployed Telecommunicators short/long term during disaster events
  • Maintain daily operations within a 9-1-1 center regardless of circumstances

Our goal is to raise $30,000.  The funds will be used to purchase a deployment trailers and secure storage and maintenance fees.  If funds are not reached by the deadline, the Texas Chapters of APCO and NENA will extend the fundraiser until they are met. 

TX-TERT is the first federally recognized Telecommunicator disaster deployment team.  They have receive numerous recognitions throughout the state to include:

  • 2008 Award of Gratitude, Galveston County 
  • 2009 Presidential Award, TX-NENA
  • 2009 Award of Merit, Commission on State Emergency Communications
  • 2009 Presidential Achievements Award, TX-APCO
  • 2009 P.R.I.D.E Award, North Central Texas Council of Governments
  • 2012 Hot Stuff Award, NCTCOG Emergency Preparedness
  • 2012 Recognition of Merit Award, St. John the Baptist Parish, LA
