Learning from real life survival: NZ Antarctica
The Russian fishing vessel “Sparta” in 2011 got hull damage and took in water. The vessel had 32 people on board, and it was not built for operating in Polar waters. The NZ Air Force flew over with their Hercules plane to drop equipment in order for the crew to fix the damages to the hull. Two drops of equipment were necessary, as the first did not contain the needed equipment. One of the learning points was to ask more questions in order to make sure that kits contain everything that is needed for a specific situation. The whole operation took about one month in total and all lives were saved. 📷Royal NZ Air Force

True innovation for first responders being tested in UK. Would be interesting to find out how the equipment holds in cold ANA conditions.

"The Great North Air Ambulance reached out and constructed a typical rescue scenario. Calling in helicopter support for each and every case isn't possible or practical which leaves vehicle & foot approach. What if the Critical Care first responder could locate and stabilise the casualty within minutes of vehicle arrival. Well in this exercise we did it in 90 seconds vs the 25 minutes of arduous climb!"
