Published April 17, 2015
Airmen for the 48th Rescue Squadron conducted a pre-deployment training exercise, April 14.
In preparation for future deployments the Airmen focused on enhancing their proficiency in a number of different skillsets including mass casualty treatment and evacuation, extrication, and confined space/collapsed structure rescue.
During this exercise several Airmen volunteered to be simulated victims to provide a more realistic feeling to the controlled environment. This allowed the team to work through the elements of stress that surround any complex theatre or mission.
