Pre-hospital providers, Hospitals, The Region/State EMS office,
Trauma Commission and RTAC.
We highly Encourage that at least one person from each Hospitals
Administration plan to attend the 11A-12N Session so that you
can learn about the project and how it can benefit you with your
internal communications, beyond the pre-hospital component.
Lunch will be served at 11A during the presentation.
If you are not a Council or RTAC Voting Member, please email me
