SOC supports Italian medical training centre
11 April 2018
Southern Operations Centre supports Italian Multinational Medical Joint Training Center by deploying from Taranto and establishing in Rome a Full Medical Treatment Facility. This was carried out in support of a medical evaluation exercise held in late March 2018.
The exercise involved 25 medic/paramedic scholars from 14 participating nations reacting to realistic events generated by the directing staff. Without the materiel provided from Capability Package 156 it would not have been possible to conduct a realistic exercise.
A distinguished visitors day was held on 22 March, which was attended by many international military and NATO personnel. During the closing remarks thanks were extended to the NSPA General Manager, Director Operations and SOC Commander for NSPA's assistance.
