Community training institute, TraumaLink quickly connects traffic accident victims with the emergency care they need. At the time an Injury Occurs, victims and bystanders call TraumaLink’s emergency hotline using mobile phones. Then, a TraumaLink operator takes the emergency call and alerts trained first responders that are nearby and ready to help. And hence, a trained volunteer first responder is quickly dispatched to provide care to accident victims until they can reach more advanced medical care. TraumaLink helps traffic crash victims survive their injuries by connecting them to local first responders.
