Members of TX-CERA who respond to the needs of cultural institutions after a disaster, assess damage, and initiate salvage of cultural collections are called Texas Heritage Responders (THR). The title of Texas Heritage Responder recognizes professionals with the ability to work within an Incident Command System and lead volunteers in collections recovery response efforts. To qualify for this title, each individual must participate in and complete all required Texas Heritage Responder (THR) training or have received equivalent training in the field.
