off list?

Could you post this on the EMS list server for me? I haven't posted anything

in so long I guess I've got to reapply!

Thanks, Pete

Hello All,

Cheek wanted me to pass this along to everyone on the EMS list server.

is resigning his appointment to GETAC at the end of the year, but will

be at the GETAC meetings and EMS Conference in Dallas later this month. I'm

sure he'd enjoy visiting with each of you.

Dear Governor :

I was appointed by former Governor Bush to the Governor’s EMS and

Trauma Advisory Council (GETAC) in January of 2000. I was re-appointed to the

council by you in January 2002. I was involved with EMS and Trauma System

development prior to those appointments with my involvement of the Emergency

Healthcare Advisory Council (EHCAC), of which I chaired, until the council was

replaced by GETAC. It has been my honor to serve the people of Texas and

represent Texas professional firefighters on each of these councils over the

last 12

years. The opportunities I have had to work with the many stakeholders

involved in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Trauma Systems have been one


I will always cherish.

Recently my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has undergone

surgery and started treatments for this disease which statistically affects 1

out of 8 women. Although her prognosis is very good, I feel I must

reprioritize my activities and energy to be more focused on my family. It is

for this

reason that I offer this letter of resignation as a member of the Governor’s

EMS and Trauma Advisory Council effective December 31, 2006.

I appreciate your efforts in working with our council to address the many

issues that face pre hospital emergency care in Texas. Through your support of

our efforts, the EMS and Trauma System in Texas continues to develop to

address the needs of the people of Texas. The efforts of the members of the

council, as well as the stakeholders we represent, are making great strides in

addressing our EMS and Trauma System issues. It is my hope you will continue to

support those efforts to make Texas the model for other states to follow.

After my resignation is effective, the Texas State Association of

Firefighters (TSAFF) will submit names for your consideration for my

replacement. I

appreciate the opportunity that I was given to serve and represent the

professional firefighters of Texas.

I have assured the president of the TSAFF, Guy , that I will help the

new appointee in any way I can to make the transition a smooth one. Thank you

for what you do to support EMS and Trauma Systems in Texas and thank you for

your support of professional firefighters in Texas.
