Welcome to the Mid Carolina Trauma RAC website.
The Mid Carolina Trauma Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) plays a lead role regarding the coordination and communication for trauma and disaster programs within the Mid Carolina region of North Carolina.
In North Carolina a RAC is a Regional Advisory Committee to coordinate the delivery of trauma services within the state. There are currently eight RACs in the state, and the system has been legislated since the late 1990s. Each RAC is led administratively by a trauma center(s) within the region.
The mission of each RAC is to reduce trauma related morbidity and mortality through injury prevention, performance improvement, and educational strategies working with stakeholders (hospitals, EMS, and community partners) within the region. The RAC also assists with regional disaster medical preparedness initiatives.
