U.S. Air Force Maj. David Ferguson, 315th Aerospace Medicine Squadron flight nurse, gives a thumbs up for patients to be loaded into a C-17 Globemaster III during a National Disaster Medical System exercise at Joint Base Charleston, S.C., May 14, 2014. The 315th Airlift Wing hosted a NDMS exercise to enable active, reserve and guard service members along with civilian agencies the ability to demonstrate medical rescue and treatment skills. The event took place at both Joint Base Charleston, S.C., the location of the simulated earthquake incident where patients received initial treatment, and Greenevill, S.C., where patients were evacuated to for follow-on care. The NDMS is designed to augment the Nation's medical response capability in a way that assists State and local authorities dealing with the medical impacts of a major disaster during peacetime while also providing support to military and the Department of Veterans Affairs medical systems.
