    Northeast Regional Trauma Advisory Committee

    The Northeast Regional Trauma Advisory Committee (NERTAC) includes Koochiching, Itasca, Aitkin, Carlton, St. Louis, Lake and Cook counties in Minnesota. Arrowhead EMS Association (AEMSA) serves as the administrative and fiscal agent for the RTAC.

    The Commissioner of Health of the State of Minnesota is charged to both seek the advice of the State Trauma Advisory Council (STAC) in implementing and updating the criteria and to adapt and modify the criteria as appropriate to accommodate Minnesota’s unique geography and the state’s hospital and health professional distribution. The latter requirement is aided by the contributions of Regional Trauma Advisory Committees (RTACs). The statutory functions of the RTACs are to advise, consult with, and make recommendations to the STAC for regional modifications to the statewide trauma criteria that will improve patient care and accommodate specific regional needs. To date, five trauma regions have formed across Minnesota.

    ID Badge Program

    Tips for taking a good photo

    1. Use a solid colored background-opposite of the clothing color
    2. Frame the person's shoulders and head
    3. Avoid shaded glasses or caps that hide or shade the face
    4. Set dial to "portrait mode" (usually a person's head symbol)
    5. Take the photo in a "portrait" or vertical position rather than "landscape"
    6. Make the flash go off to avoid shadowing on the face.
    7. The mode indicator should display the "will flash no matter what" icon (usually a ightning bolt) as opposed to the "will flash if necessary" icon (a lightning bolt with an "A" next to it)
    8. In general, stand 3-5 feet from the individual to avoid using zoom for high resolution
    9. With camera steady, push shutter button halfway down to auto-focus (after usually a green light or beep) then you can push it all the way down
    10. Take several shots! Remember to take more than one in case one or two didn’t turn out

    Tips for signatures that will scan well

    Use a thicker lined pen or marker, this will scan more solidly

    Sign your name as you would any letter or document - your name will also be typed/printed under your photo

    Sign your name in the large box without going outside the lines, larger than you normally do.

    Thank you for your interest in our ID Badge Program. Please follow the instructions and tips for getting back quality ID cards. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to call the office at 218-726-0070.
