TRAUMALINK HAS DEVELOPED A SCALABLE AND SUSTAINABLE MODEL TO SAVE LIVES AFTER TRAUMATIC INJURIES. SO FAR WE HAVE:

               828 Volunteers

Responded to nearly 2200 incidents

Expanded operations to 205 km with a 24/7 call center

Provided emergency first-aid to over 4200 injured patients

WHAT WE DO

Injured patients are much more likely to survive if they receive treatment quickly.  Fortunately, within the first hour after injury, simple medical treatments can be highly effective at preventing paralysis and death. This critical window is known as the “Golden Hour” and is the period of time during which TraumaLink First Responders work. LEARN MORE
