Japanese emergency response team members from Chubu Hospital off-load a mock casualty from the air ambulance, known as “Doctor Heli,” at U.S. Naval Hospital Okinawa April 27. U.S. military and local and national Japanese emergency response services conducted a field training exercise, where, for the first time, Japanese emergency response helicopters performed a patient transport to USNH Okinawa. The exercise was part of an emergency preparedness exercise conducted between the U.S. military and Japanese emergency response services to deepen U.S.-Japan mutual understanding and cooperation.
