940th Reservists practice life-saving skills, prepare for battle

BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, CALIF. --Air Force Reservists assigned to the 940th Air Refueling Wing here stabilize a "wounded" warrior during a self aid and buddy care evaluation Dec. 8, 2007. Wing Reservists were practicing their survival skills in preparation for a February 2008 operational readiness inspection. A variety of "wounded" individuals were expertly moulaged to simulate the full spectrum of battlefield injuries. Tech. Sgt. Barbara Mateus, 940th SABC instructor/evaluator said the Airmen were being tested on their ability to engage and help while maintaining the safety of everyone. "It was great hands on training," she said. "It made them think about prioritizing between helping and being safe." (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Barbara Mateus)
