In most cases, patients are evacuated out of the disaster area by the Department of Defense (DOD) Aeromedical Evacuation System (AES), which is operated by the Global Patient Movement Requirements Center (GPMRC), of the U.S. Transportation Command. In the event of a disaster, the GPMRC is tasked to deploy the Immediate Response Assessment Team (IRAT). The IRAT determines the need for patient evacuation. If there is a need, a mission tasking order is issued to DOD, and FCCs are activated. GPMRC then issues instructions to the FCCs for the reporting of available beds. Simultaneously, patient information is gathered at the disaster site and forwarded to GPMRC through the IRAT. GPMRC determines to which FCCs the patients will be moved based on the victims’ needs, beds available, and transportation availability. GPMRC coordinates with the IRAT and other deployed DOD transportation elements at the disaster site to ensure smooth air operations.
