The STAC advises the Department and the Commissioner regarding trauma and disaster care within the State. Its mission and purpose is to promote public health, safety and welfare by providing for the development, coordination and maintenance of systems for emergency medical, trauma, and disaster care, including the effective and expeditious transfer of patients in need of such care to facilities appropriately staffed and equipped to provide such care, towards the goal of decreasing morbidity and mortality from traumatic injuries arising from single incidents as well as mass-casualty events.
