|Publication Date:||27 August 2014|
EMEDS and AFTH medical support packages provide individual bed-down and theater-level medical services for deployed forces or select population groups. The primary mission is to provide forward stabilization, resuscitative care, primary care, dental services, and force health protection and prepare casualties for evacuation to the next level of care. Their modular and scalable design allows the Air Force to deploy medical capabilities ranging from small teams that provide highly skilled medical care for a limited number of casualties to a large medical system that can provide specialized care to a population at risk (PAR) over 6,500. Air Combat Command (ACC) is the Manpower and Equipment Force Packaging (MEFPAK) Responsible Agency (MRA).
