Medical Training in Lithuania
This week the medical staff of Enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group Lithuania (eFP BG Lithuania) conducted a training exercise designed to test interoperability between the different national elements that comprise the force.
Medical personnel from France, Germany, the Netherlands and Norway worked together in a scenario in which they were (for exercise) first responders to a simulated artillery strike. Simultaneously caring for 20 casualties, most of whom require different medical care, is a situation that demands the highest levels of competence. It was pleasing to note participating medical practitioners displayed superb levels of professionalism throughout the course of the exercise.
