AS532U2 Cougar MEDEVAC in Rucphen

Post by redskin301 »

During the Air Mobile training in Rucphen, also the procedures for medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) were trained. For medical care, the 11th Air Mobile Brigade falls back on the 11th Medical Company. The unit is 165 soldiers strong and is stationed in Assen; also has the unit a branch of two medical platoons in Schaarsbergen. The unit consists off a company staff, a logistics platoon and 3 medical platoons. It houses nine aid stations and 51 medical disposal equipment. This provides emergency, curative and preventive care to all personnel within the brigade and provides support far beyond. A large part of these resources are airmobile transportable.

The command elements of the unit contribute to the medical decision-making and planning of the medical resources in the preparation and execution of missions. Together with the Section G Med of the brigade, they can jointly form a Medical Cell. Their task is to coordinate the timely evacuation of injured and sick soldiers from the moment they are injured to a hospital in the Netherlands.

The Training and Preparation Office ensures that the unit's personnel have sufficient knowledge and are trained to perform their medical tasks under the most diverse circumstances. In this task they also support the personnel of the other units of the brigade. The unit has training facilities available for this in Assen and Schaarsbergen.

Kind regards,
