In this video blog below, Lt. Emily Lipsky, Coastal Riverine Group One’s senior medical officer, explains how Sailors and Soldiers provided simulated emergency medical response for a mass casualty drill with participants and coalition partners during Rim of the Pacific 2016.
Twenty-six nations, more than 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft, and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC until August 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. The world’s largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that helps participants foster and sustain the cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea-lanes and security on the world’s oceans. RIMPAC 2016 is the 25th exercise in the series that began in 1971.
