U.S. Army Civil Affairs Team and Khuvsgul Local Emergency Management Agency Training on Water Rescue

MURUN, U.S. Embassy in Mongolia -- Rescuers from the Khuvsgul Province Local Emergency Management Agency (LEMA) and a U.S. Army Civil Affairs team participated in a week-long medical engagement and exchange focused on water-related injuries and water rescue techniques in Murun, Mongolia from June 20 – 24, 2022.

The engagement centered on lifesaving skills, consisting of in-depth and practical exercises with rigorous, realistic trauma scenarios out in the field. The Civil Affairs team developed a curriculum that focused on the most frequent medical emergencies that occur within the province. Due to the province being home to one of the largest and heavily visited lakes in Mongolia, the team trained the LEMA rescuers on critical water-related medical treatments. The event culminated with the U.S. team donating medical equipment to their Mongolian partners that will be used to respond to real world emergencies.

The training bolstered the medical response capabilities of the rescuers within the province, creating a safer community for Murun and the surrounding areas. This event built upon the base of knowledge that previous Civil Affairs teams provided to the Khuvsgul LEMA.

The U.S. Army Civil Affairs teams are a part of the U.S. effort to build shared capabilities with partner nations around the world. Training events like this medical engagement demonstrate to our partners the benefits of working with the U.S. military in a multinational environment, deepen partnerships with our civilian and military counterparts, and improve relationships with host nation government entities.
