We have had some outstanding medic impressions at D-Day Conneaut in years past, and we hope to continue that tradition. Because of the great job our medics have done, and the vital role they play in representing D-Day, we have made some changes that we hope will be enhancements to the medic experience and for the overall improvement of this event.
We are planning to enhance the scenario of Saturday's landing by having Allied medic teams treating and evacuating the wounded via the landing craft. We are planning to give medics the opportunity to evacuate some of the casualties, set up an aid station and triage the â€œwoundedâ€. We will recruit vehicles to assist in the evacuations. Bring your stretchers and practice your carrying positions!
We'd also like to expand the opportunity for medics and medic assistants to work together. As it is a frequent practice for new recruits to sometimes fulfill medics roles, we would like to extend our assistance to these individuals and help them team up with more experienced medic reenactors. For the experienced medic re-enactors, this is an opportunity to delve into more intense living history by having help for treating, tagging, and evacuating the wounded. It's also an opportunity for a more realistic battlefield experience for you, perhaps instructing a "scared new recruit" what they need to do to treat the casualty in front of them.
Like last year, we'd like all medics to check in at their respective camp HQ.
Why? Two Reasons.
1. We would like to conduct a simple briefing about what to do during the landing and other scenarios.
2. We want to brief everyone on what to do if they come across an actual, real, medical emergency "how to stop the battle and get a REAL medic, really fast." As you go about "treating casualties" you may be the first person to come across a real emergency that others haven't noticed, so we want to emphasize this procedure to you.
## Note: Please mention that you will be portraying a medic under the â€œimpressionâ€ category in the registration information.
