KFOR ROLE 1 CONDUCTS MEDEVAC EXERCISE

The exercise was based on an individual injured in a Road Traffic Accident (RTA). The Medical Team assesses the primary survey, stabilized the patient and it makes him ready for the evacuation.

They then requested a MEDEVAC Helicopter to bring the patient for further treatment to the next medical treatment facility.
