Preparing for major incidents
The Major Incident Medical Management and Support (MIMMS) Course was organised by the NATO Centre of Excellence for Military Medicine (MILMED COE) on 8-10 October 2013. The course was held in Budapest, Hungary with the participation of 21 students from 11 nations.
The aim of the biannually organised MIMMS course is to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively manage the scene of a major casualty incident in a military environment. The 3-day-long course consists of lectures, table top and practical exercises familiarizing the students with the CSCATTT (Command; Safety; Communication; Assessment; Triage; Treatment; Transport) procedure.

Vigorous Warrior 2013
The NATO Centre of Excellence for Military Medicine (MILMED COE) in cooperation with the Joint Medical Service of the Bundeswehr organized a multinational military medical exercise - Vigorous Warrior 2013 (VW13) - on 16-27 September 2013 in Feldkirchen, Germany with participation from MILMED COE Sponsoring Nations among others, with the aim to exercise a modular constructed multinational Military Medical Support System. The participants included Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Romania, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
Near 600 military medical professionals from 11 nations trained together in order to test theory in reality - to what extent can military medical modules and units from different nations work effectively together. The participants exercised the patient flow - transportation and treatment between and within multinational medical treatment facilities on various levels under field conditions in a non-Article 5 scenario. Also, this event was perfect for networking within the key personnel of NATO’s medical community.
