Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Advisory Council's Oversight, Analysis, and Research Committee.

Dr. Lerner is an injury epidemiologist and a former EMS field provider who has dedicated her career to improving prehospital care through research. She has over 15 years of EMS related experience and has authored over 50 EMS related, peer reviewed publications. Her current federally funded projects include studying the trauma triage guidelines and developing a national consensus on mass casualty triage. Her research expertise is balanced with five years of experience working as both a career and volunteer EMS provider in Buffalo and Lancaster, New York.

In 2008, Dr. Lerner led a multidisciplinary work group that published a new national guideline for triage following mass casualty incidents. Their proposed SALT triage guideline is an acronym for Sort, Assess, Life Saving Interventions, Treatment and/or Transport. It includes a standardized naming and color-coding system to identify and prioritize patients medical needs, and was developed with the intention that it could be used to treat all types of patients in all types of incidents.
