e. Conduct a briefing for patients and attendants on the patient evacuation system
and evacuation rules. If patients are unable to come to the patient evacuation section, the
patient evacuation clerk will go to the wards to brief the patients. Patients are briefed at
least two days prior to their departure. The orientation explains the evacuation processing
that is required and answer questions patients/attendants may have concerning their
evacuation. Patients are given Military Airlift Command Pamphlet 164-4, "Information for
Patients," if available. The briefing relieves anxiety and assists in preparation for the trip.
Briefings can be written and/or verbal and include the following:
The manner in which the aeromedical evacuation system operates.
The necessity for RON and regrouping of patients.
(3) Specific routing, when known; otherwise, approximate routing.
(4) Estimated time en route.
(5) Baggage limitations.
(6) The need for personal funds, appropriate dress, and US Department of
Agriculture and customs inspections.
(8) Passport and visa, reentry, residency, and custom requirements.
(NOTE: Expectant mothers must have all necessary documents for
proper registration of births.)
(9) Facilities available and rules governing stay of patients and their families
at CONUS airports.
(10) Antihijacking procedures to include limitations of stowed and handcarried
baggage which is searched at time of evacuation (see figure 3-3).
(11) Any information that will be helpful to the patients.
(12) What type of clothing they are authorized to wear.
