Casualty Evacuations

We’re here to make sure the brave men and women on the front line know there’s a skilled medical team just a few hundred metres away, ready and embedded with them. We’re committed to staying put, no matter how intense things get.

How does our casevac system work and why is it so effective?

1. Coordination with Commanders

We start by coordinating with commanders to set up a casualty collection point (CCP) within one kilometre from the zero line, ensuring quick access while staying safe from the most intense conflict areas.

2. Role of Battalion Medics 

Battalion medics are responsible for transporting injured soldiers from the front to the designated CCP. Their quick action not only ensures prompt medical attention for the injured (thanks to us doing the long legwork for them of stabilising and transporting to the road ambulance and paramedics), but also allows these medics to return swiftly to their positions, maintaining unit strength.

3. Transport and Medical Checks

While moving the patient through the forest towards road ambulances, our team conducts wound stabilisation checks. This is a critical step to prevent the worsening of injuries and prepare the patient for further treatment at medical facilities. We will catheterise most patients as an example of this.

4. Maintaining Brigade Readiness 

By efficiently managing casualty evacuation, we relieve the brigade of this burden. This allows the brigade to maintain soldier readiness, a crucial aspect in supporting wounded fighters and preserving lives. Our system’s efficiency ensures that the brigade can focus on its primary responsibilities while we handle the medical emergencies.
