BEIJING, Feb.25 -- The 21st Chinese peacekeeping Level-1+ Hospital to UNIFIL completed its tasks in the Angel Rescue Exercise, an emergency medical rescue drill organized by the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) on February 21, local time.
The exercise was set in the scenario of a car accident of a Spanish patrol convoy that injured four people. The commanding center of the UNIFIL headquarters organized the medical teams of the peacekeeping forces to carry out on-site first-aid evacuation of the injured, focusing on testing the emergency rescue and collaborative support capabilities of the peacekeeping forces.
Nine countries participated in or observed the event including China, Spain, Indonesia, and Serbia. The Chinese peacekeepers won high acclaim from all parties with their excellent performance.
With no set of script and being conducted under whole-process supervision and evaluation, the UNIFIL Angel Rescue exercise required the medical troops involved to make quick response in close communication and coordination to carry out emergency rescue for the injured, so as to test their capabilities of medical emergency response and coordinated medical support.
