Subtopic 17: Wheeled Ambulance Availability

Observation Synopsis

In a non-linear urban environment, many maneuver units want wheeled evacuation assets. The FSMC's wheeled ambulances go forward of the maneuver unit's BAS. Additionally, since the FSMC is only authorized four wheeled ambulances, there were not enough to go around.

Lessons Learned

  • Maneuver task forces need to utilize non-standard platforms and need to either be resourced additional wheeled platforms from APS stocks or authorized wheeled platforms.

DOTMLPF Implications

Organization: Maneuver medical platoons need to be authorized two wheeled ambulances and FSMCs need to be authorized an additional two for a total of six wheeled ambulances.
