Region II EMS is engaged in several programs throughout the spectrum from teaching CPR to the general public to assisting hospitals in becoming designated as Trauma Centers. We provide continuing education training for responders and EMS services to ensure they are capable of providing YOU the best available care necessary. Some of the ways we do this by taking the training to them with our traveling CE Circuit and hosting an annual EMS Conference each year in November. We are involved in Health System Preparedness by participating in Emergency Management activities and working with the Local Emergency Planning Committees ( LEPC's ) to develop and update their local systems All Hazards Emergency Operations Plans ( AHEOP ). We are also a PILOT COMMUNITY for the New Mexico Modular Emergency Medical System program which is designed to assist hospitals in dealing with Extreme Patient Surge during a catastrophic event. www.nmmems.org Trauma Center Designation for hospitals is a project the Regional EMS offices and the New Mexico Department of Health, EMS Bureau is working hard towards accomplishing.

Stuart has been the Chairman of the Dona Ana County EMS QA Committee as well as an EMT Intermediate with Fairacres VFD. Stuart has been an active member of the EMS and Fire community and will be missed. He passed away in his sleep this morning, at home. His wife and his father were at home with him. The memorial services for Stuart Brown will be at 1500 hours on Monday, April 12th at La Paz Graham Funeral Home, 555 West Amador, Las Cruces. Please pass this information onto the members of your department. We will hold QA on Monday evening. Several of us know that this is what Stuart would have wanted as he was very pleased with the progress we have made over the past couple of years. I'd like to encourage you to attend as a tribute to Stuart.
