As a medical services supplier to the ADF, International SOS provides medical personnel and equipment to support ADF field training exercises at a range of locations across Australia.
In this role, International SOS medical personnel support:
- Weapons training practices using live ammunition and explosive ordnance; and
- Field training that often occurs in remote locations with minimal supporting infrastructure involving ADF personnel practicing simulated and/or live natures of ammunition.
International SOS medical staff play a key role in responding to any medical needs arising from these training exercises including the initial medical response to preserve life, minimise the effect of injury and promote positive health outcomes.
