Texas State Guard Troops Train Loading & Unlocking Casualties from a Helicopter

Medical Troops from the 2nd Brigade of the Texas State Guard (State Defense Force) recently spent their May weekend training drill focuses on emergency response to the transportation of casualties during a disaster. The unit initially setup a landing zone then practiced loading & unloading casualties from a CH-46E Chopper.

Many State Defense Forces, like the California State Guard, Georgia State Defense Force, are used for assisting the National Guard with casualty transportation and emergency medical care.

Medical personnel of 1st Battalion, 2nd Brigade, Texas State Guard, practice medical evacuation, litter loading and unloading with static displays of historic military vehicles, including a Vietnam era ambulance and a CH-46E provided by the National United States Armed Forces Museum at Ellington Field, Houston, Texas, May 14, 2022. Troops also set up a landing zone and reviewed basic aircraft safety and familiarization that would be needed in a mass care environment that may occur during a hurricane or other natural disaster.
