Radio Communications

Walkie-Talkie

Providers of emergency medical and trauma care must be able to communicate with each other to maximize their efforts. Communications in the Emergency Medical and Trauma Services (EMTS) systems include: access to the system through 911 services, pre-arrival instructions to callers, dispatch of prehospital services, communications with physicians for online medical control and notification of patients being transported to facilities.

 

 

Colorado has deployed a statewide Digital Trunked Radio System that providers of emergency medical and trauma care may use for communications. Information regarding this system can be found at:
