940th AMDS litter team transport triaged patients during Mass Casualty Exercise

A litter team from the 940th Aerospace Medicine Squadron sets down a ‘patient’ with a simulated leg injury while two other 'patients' watch at a Mass Casualty Exercise, Oct. 5, 2014, Beale Air Force Base, Calif. The red tarp symbolized one of the different sections of triage. Triage is a medical term for sorting patients according to a system of priorities designed to maximize the number of survivors. The red tarp indicated that the patients are seriously injured and required immediate transport. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Heather Skinkle/Released)
