  • Published
Two special operations medics from the 1st Battalion, 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne) helped teach medics from the 353rd Special Operations Support Squadron ways to improve future medical training scenarios during a brief class here Oct. 27. Sgt. 1st Class Gregory Meza and Staff Sgt. Matthew Lalor demonstrated ways to improve on existing techniques used during scenarios as well as ways to incorporate everyday items and equipment to reduce costs and maximize the benefit medical professional and other Airmen receive from the exercises. Some of the techniques included adding charcoal to simulated burns and crushing PVC pipe to simulate bones on compound fractures. The evaluators from the 353 SOSS Medical Flight plan on incorporating what they learned into upcoming training scenarios.
