Prepare a MEDEVAC request for the following situation.
You are a combat lifesaver assigned to an artillery squad.
While on convoy, the vehicle in front of you struck an IED
and its two US military occupants were thrown from the
vehicle. One casualty had an amputation of his left hand.
You have controlled the bleeding with a tourniquet and a
pressure dressing. The other casualty sustained a
penetrating shrapnel wound to the mid abdomen. After you
stabilized both casualties, your battery commander tells you
to call for a MEDEVAC. You are located at a casualty
collection point at GH11723541. Your call sign and suffix is
Battle 7. The pickup site will be marked with an orange
panel. There are no enemy troops in the area.
Practice making the evacuation request given in exercises 12 and 13. Use all
appropriate transmitting rules. Use prowords and use the proper pronunciation of
letters and numbers. Have someone listen to detect any problems with your
simulated transmission. An evaluation form is found in the Solutions to Exercises.
