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 “wounded”.
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.
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.
Please mention that you will be portraying a medic under the
“impression” category in the registration information.
