The purpose of the Targeted Event Readiness Forum (TERF) is to provide an environment for exploring opportunities along the disaster response continuum. The TERF is not a disaster preparedness exercise, but instead is a facilitated discussion to foster the sharing of information, encourage collaboration and promote coordination among peers. However, you will want to reference your disaster plan in advance to be prepared to offer information when asked.
