9 line Med Evac

I have to conduct a ctt session this weekend at drill. I am tasked with Request Medical Evacuation. I have the manual and have read through the task. My question is what the radio commo actually sounds like? From the first contact to the point when the aircraft picks up the wounded.

Sounds like any other radio transmission from the point you call they're "XRAY" or "MIKE" or whatever. You'll send up your 9 line. The first 5 lines are the most imporant and need to be rattled off before the bird gets up into the air, the other 4 can be relayed to them while they are en route.

I'm sure that there is an example in the manual that you've read. If not, you can more than likely find anything you need on this website, or you can google it.
I'm a medic, so let me see if this is what you were looking for.

NOTE THAT THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE. I'VE MADE EVERYTHING UP

Band-Aid33 (your call sign)
Dynacorp4 (your Brigade)

Scenerio: You're currently deployed and your platoon has been in a TIC while on a dismounted patrol. You have several soldiers wounded and possibly a few locals that have been hurt from indirect fire. There's currently no NBC threat.

Here's how the 9-line reads:

YOU:Dynacorp4 this is Band-Aid33 requesting MEDEVAC over.

BRIGADE:Band-Aid33 this is Dynacorp4 send it.

YOU:Dynacorp4 this is Band-Aid33 ROGER, standby....Line 1: VN2345678091 break
Line 2: 26000 Band-Aid33 break
Line 3: Bravo Two break, Charlie Tree break
Line 4: Alpha
Line 5: Lima four break Alpha one break
How Copy Over?

Brigade:Band-Aid33 this is Dynacorp4 (then they relay EXACTLY what you said)

If no corrections need to be made, then you say: Dynacorp4 this is Band-Aid33 that's a good copy over

** After the first 5 lines have been sent, then it's up to both YOU and the receiving party to finish the 9 line at your availability.

** Also note that the LINE MEDIC or MEDIC ON SCENE WILL NOT CALL IN THE 9 LINE...it will be another person, usually sqd ldr with RTO transmitting

How would you classify something as being urgent, urgent surgical, priority, routine or convenience?


That is done by the medic, or absent a medic, the senior person. As to how, it's something that comes with experience--you need to relate the injury/illness to the timeframes specified as the criteria for classification.

PRIORITY - needs treatment within 4hrs
