EUFOR trains Armed Forces BiH Forklift Handlers_1

A EUFOR Mobile Training Team has been training personnel from Armed Forces BiH during a Forklift Handler Course, which took place in Rajlovac from 15 to 26 September.
The training, delivered by a Swiss Mobile Training Team, covered how to drive and handle the forklifts safely.  The course itself lasted one week but took place in 2 phases: the first part was to ‘train the trainers’, and the second part confirmed the abilities of these new instructors to teach students in future.
In total, 31 military and civilian personnel from Armed Forces BiH were trained in technical, driving, handling and maintenance aspects, with 6 personnel from Armed Forces BiH becoming instructors.

EUFOR’s A-Coy conducts medical training in Kalinovik_1

The Austrian company of EUFOR’s Multi-National Battalion (MNBN) conducted training in September 2014 with the Medical Team of EUFOR.
An exercise scenario was created where some soldiers were wounded and subsequently had to be treated properly. The injuries ranged from light abrasions to people collapsing and someone suffering from a heart attack. While the lightly injured people were flown out by a Blawk Hawk helicopter, the latter required a so called MEDEVAC (i.e. the abbreviated form for "Medical Evacuation"). A MEDEVAC is only requested for potentially lethal injuries. After the medical personnel within the company had performed first aid measures the affected soldier was brought to the Helicopter Landing Site. As soon as the emergency doctor arrived via helicopter, she checked the patient and ensured the immediate transportation to a local hospital in Sarajevo.

EUFOR Multinational Battalion trains with Armed Forces BiH_1

Between 8th and 12th September, a Turkish Platoon from EUFOR’s Multinational Battalion conducted combined training with a platoon from the 4th Infantry Brigade of the Armed Forces BiH.
The training, which took place in Livno, covered a broad range of topics including force protection, convoy and escort and civil disturbance operations. The designated training officer of the Multinational Battalion, First Lieutenant Serkan Tok (from the Turkish Army), was impressed by the extraordinary motivation of the soldiers: “Both the Turkish and the BiH troops are eager to learn from each other and were curious about the different tactics and techniques which are applied. Moreover, I want to mention that everything was prepared in a perfect manner by our hosts.”
