Offshore MedEvac Team Training


This program is designed to provide Medical Evacuation (MedEvac) personnel with:

A basic understanding of the hazards associated with both caring for and transporting injured (non-ambulatory) workers to shore via helicopter and responding to a mass casualty incident on a vessel, platform or rig.
Knowledge and skills necessary to interact with both emergency response teams offshore and various personnel transfer devices (Mariner transfer basket, hoisting down from a helicopter) as may be required during a major incident where normal helicopter landings are precluded or where the med-evac team is required to stay and assist on scene medical teams.
