Texas State Guard and US Air Force Unite for Critical Casualty Transport Exercise at Camp Bullis

Amidst an unfolding state emergency due to severe weather events, the soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 6th Brigade, TXSG, have showcased their preparedness and unwavering dedication to public safety. Collaborating with the 59th Training Squadron of The United States Air Force at Joint Base Camp Bullis, these soldiers engaged in Aerial Port of Embarkation (APOE) & Aerial Port of Disembarkation (APOD) exercises. These drills, crucial in times of crisis, emphasize the timely and effective triaging of civilian casualties, ensuring that the most critical cases receive the immediate attention they require.

The significance of such trainings cannot be overstated. In the chaotic aftermath of a severe weather event or state emergency, the ability to rapidly assess, triage, and transport civilian casualties to appropriate medical facilities can make the difference between life and death. By practicing litter loading and unloading of simulated casualties onto Air Force transport aircraft and EMS ambulances, these troops ensure they are well-equipped and ready to respond efficiently when real-life crises arise. Their dedication to mastering these skills underscores the military’s commitment to supporting and safeguarding the well-being of the public in challenging times.
