About Trauma Radios on AWIN:

Arkansas Trauma Communications System

  • Administered and maintained by the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH). ADH has strict oversight of its template of six AWIN talkgroups, “Trauma 1-6,” commonly referred to as “ADH Trauma” or “Trauma-Comm.” AWIN radios that are authorized for and programmed with these trauma talkgroups are called “trauma radios.” According to ADH Trauma Radio Guidelines, “Only Arkansas-licensed, transporting ground and rotor wing air ambulances that are owned by EMS providers participating in the trauma system are allowed to have and utilize AWIN trauma mobile/portable radios.” The Trauma-Comm template is intended primarily for mobile AWIN radios installed in these air and ground ambulances, but some accompanying portable radios may also be approved for Trauma-Comm at the discretion of ADH. Field Triage Decision Scheme: The Arkansas Trauma Triage Protocol
  • [ Trauma Forms & Resources)
  • Arkansas Trauma Communications Center (ATCC)
  • Dispatch is prohibited, only "scene runs" and "hospital-to-hospital" transports.
  • AWIN radios are programmed with MAC channels and interoperable channels to facilitate better disaster communications with EMS, fire, law enforcement, and emergency management officials. As always, the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management will assign a MAC channel for disaster operations. ADH has access to the MAC talk groups and will request an EMS MAC talk group when needed. Trauma talk groups 3-6 are available for assignment by the ATCC to EMS agencies when needed to coordinate communications for multi-agency response. This involves:

1. An incident that overwhelms an ambulance, yet does not require MCI level activation; 2. for ground to air communications.

Normal Communications Procedure

  • Field to hospital trauma response:

1. EMS unit is dispatched to scene by 911 or their dispatch center. 2. EMS determines if it is a Major or Moderate trauma case as defined by the Arkansas Field Triage Guidelines. 3. If patient is an appropriate level trauma case, the EMS unit calls the ATCC on the appropriate AWIN talk group for their geographical area and passes information to the ATCC. 4. EMS unit proceeds to hospital based on information obtained from the ATCC.
