Launching trauma centers requires effective collaboration between various specialties that is influenced by several hurdles and promoters towards complex service development. Emerging Multi-organizational Network (EMON) logistics have been utilized by the military and other organizations in out-of-hospital (field) crisis to enable multidisciplinary team function and effectiveness. We briefly comment on the key logistics of EMON that may serve as a tactical roadmap in evolving trauma and acute/critical care services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Also, crisis resource management principles and simulation team training are outlined.
