Civil Defence Medic Teams



    A key mission of the SAR units is the evacuation of patients (MEDEVAC) either by air with the use of a helicopter or by sea with the use of a vessel.

    In order to provide adequate nursing support to patients during the evacuation, the JRCC in collaboration with the Civil Defence and the Police Aviation Unit, arranged the training of doctors and nurses of the Civil Defence who will participate in MEDEVAC missions to provide required specialized medical support during transportation. The volunteers followed a special program of training from the Police Aviation Unit in order to be able to participate effectively as helicopter crew and be able to follow the standard operating procedures. Refresher courses take place periodically.






    At this stage there are volunteer nurses who may be airlifted from the Larnaca Airport as well as from the Paphos airport.
    The aim is to increase the number of volunteers at both airports in the near future.
