Responded to nearly 2700 incidents

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
