|The Emergency Medical Task Force (EM-TF) concept has recently become a reality in Texas. The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has sponsored the creation of the EM-TFs in Texas.|
The four components are:
Ambulance Strike Teams (5 per Region) [25 ambulances]
Mobile Medical Unit Teams (1 per Region)
Ambulance Bus Teams (2 per Region)
RN Nurse Strike Teams (5 per Region) [25 RNs]
Texas has worked collaboratively with the eleven (11) Public Health Regions and the twenty-two (22) Regional Advisory Councils to identify eight (8) EM-TF regions in Texas.
