BorderRAC is relied upon to unite regional medical providers and serve as a strategic partner for the Texas legislature, state and local agencies, and most importantly for the health and welfare of our region. BorderRAC is integral to helping hospitals and other healthcare organizations in emergency preparedness to respond to a wide-scale natural disaster or terrorism attack. We are a healthcare coalition with a comprehensive inter-professional membership of hospitals, EMS, and other healthcare agencies and has expanded its role. Out committees work to reduce injury, illness and preventable deaths in the areas of trauma, stroke, heart disease, pediatrics, and neonates.
Our current education initiative is our Stop the Bleed (bleeding control) community class. We currently offer the bleeding control class free to the general public. Our Stop the Bleed classes teach participants to recognize life-threatening bleeding and intervene effectively.
The person next to a bleeding victim may be the one who is most likely to save them.
No one should die from preventable hemorrhage!
