  • Meet routinely - ongoing
  • Analyze the American College of Surgeons (ACS) 2007 Minnesota Trauma System Consultation Report (PDF 81 pages/358 KB), establish priorities and determine necessary modifications
  • Provide regular activity updates at EMSRB and STAC meetings

  • Provide advisory recommendations to the EMSRB and the STAC
