To minimize suffering and loss of life through an agile, flexible and reliable disaster medical response system that exceeds the expectations of our stakeholders and citizens across the great State of Texas.

  • Highly trained clinicians – We utilize physicians, nurses, and paramedics that are actively practicing in critical care environments.
  • MOA – 100’s of signed agreements with fire, EMS, and hospital agencies across the state.

OUR VISION - To expand upon our role as a critical public safety partner that delivers exceptional pre-hospital emergency medical care in a disaster environment. Alongside our state, regional and local partners, we will enhance our state’s ability to be resilient when confronted by man-made and natural disasters through superior disaster medical care for Texans.
