About Fox Valley RTAC

Mission statement:  “The mission of the Fox Valley Regional Trauma Advisory Council (RTAC) is to treat the trauma patient with the appropriate resources to minimize mortality and morbidity while returning them to their community as soon as possible.  The patient is the focus of this organization.”

The Fox Valley Regional Trauma Advisory Council (FOXRTAC) is dedicated to designing, implementing, and evaluating a regional trauma system that is data-based, confidential, and sensitive to the needs, limitations, and resources of the area. It is intended that this will optimize the quality of care and outcomes including injury prevention, reducing the severity of injuries, and decreasing the number of deaths.

Membership in the RTAC is free and consists of individuals, organizations and entities involved in the provision of patient care within the trauma region. Examples include but are not limited to: trauma surgeons, emergency physicians, EMS medical directors, EMS educators, EMS providers, Trauma coordinators, EMS coordinators, hospital administration, air medical transport, nurses, firefighters, law enforcement, dispatchers, public health, county emergency management, and other interested parties.

The Fox Valley Regional Trauma Advisory Council (FOXRTAC) is empowered by the State Trauma Advisory Council (STAC) as an essential component of the infrastructure of the Wisconsin Statewide Trauma Care System responsible for protocol development, education, data analysis and performance improvement. The enabling legislation is WI 1997 Act 154 with the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services (DHFS) serving as the lead agency for plan development and implementation.
