Code of Alabama Section 22-11D-1

Legislative findings.

The Legislature finds that trauma is one of the many severe health problems in the State of Alabama and a major cause of death and long-term disability. It is in the best interest of the citizens of Alabama to establish an efficient and well-coordinated statewide trauma system and to provide for other systems of care as the needs are recognized and funding becomes available to reduce costs and incidences of inappropriate or inadequate emergency medical services.
