• An Airman signals to service members indicating they are able to carry a patient from a Contingency Aeromedical Staging Facility bus Oct. 10 on Ramstein. There isn’t a CASF at every base in the Air Force. Depending upon where a medical Airman is stationed will determine whether or not they will work at a CASF.

    CASF provides service members with extra care

    When service members are injured downrange and need to receive specialized medical attention, they go to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center to be treated. They are then transported, by the Contingency Aeromedical Staging Facility on Ramstein, from LRMC to the Ramstein flightline where they receive care before they are transported elsewhere for further attention.
