Texas EMS Trauma & Acute Care Foundation

The Texas EMS Trauma & Acute Care Foundation (TETAF) is a non-profit organization providing many benefits to its member Regional Advisory Councils (RACs), including BVRAC . One benefit is that of a advocacy clearinghouse for information on the current Texas legislative session, helping to identify bills of interest to BVRAC members. One method of disseminating this information is through the TETAF Legislative Watch, which are available for download below. Additionally, to receive notification of relevant committee meetings and other time sensitive information directly, please considering joining the TETAF email list. The request is at the bottom of each webpage at www.TETAF.org
