County of Santa Clara Emergency Medical Services. (2015). Field Treatment Site Operations Guide.
This plan is an annex to the county’s Multiple Patient Management Plan and describes the setup, management, and utilization of a Field Treatment Site (FTS) during a multiple patient event. The FTS will be used to provide treatment to appropriate (i.e., those not needing immediate transfer to a trauma center) victims after they have been triaged using the START algorithm at a Casualty Collection Point when demand exceeds available transportation resources.
