I certify I have met the minimum qualifications required to become an OH-TERT member.
TERT Contract of Commitment
I understand that being a member of the Ohio Telecommunicator Emergency Response Taskforce (TERT) is a great honor. However, I also understand that it is a commitment that I must be willing to make voluntarily and with full knowledge of what is expected of me.
I am aware that an intrastate deployment is a minimum of four (4) days and that the minimum required for an interstate deployment is fourteen (14) days.
During this deployment phase, I realize that I will be expected to sleep in less-than-ideal situations (on the floor, in a vehicle, in a room with others, etc.) and that personal hygiene will be less than I am normally accustomed to (no showers, electricity, running water, etc.). I am also fully aware that food options may be scarce and that I should prepare 72 hours’ worth of food/water for myself. I should also provide my own medications and any other items that would be necessary for me to fulfill my deployment time as outlined above.
It is recognized that I will be deployed to an area that is experiencing a distressing event. I fully comprehend that there may be resentment with my mere presence at the location and I am ready to accept this and work to the best of my ability to overcome any obstacles. I understand that I not only make an obligation to myself, but also to the Team with which I am deployed. I am aware that I must be open to direction and feedback from my Team Leader. I understand that I will be expected to work a console position, with zero to minimal training. The equipment (if any) will likely be something I am not familiar with, and my comfort level will be very minimal.
As stated above, I am fully aware of the requirements that are placed upon me in my desire to be a member of TERT. I pledge to do my best and live up to the expectations that have been placed upon me.
