How does the TCD System work?

  • The system starts with a call to 911. 9-1-1 activates the EMS System and emergency medical responders.
  • Emergency medical responders begin treatment as soon as they reach the patient.
  • Medical care continues while the patient is being transported to the hospital.
  • Hospital staff is alerted that a patient is on the way so health care professionals can be ready to begin treatment as soon as the patient arrives.
  • Patients are taken to a hospital with staff that has been specially trained to handle trauma, stroke and STEMI.
