Visit/Inspection #2 in Tallinn, Estonia from 24th – 28th June 2019 between tech delegate CAPT(USN) Grant Staats and host planner CPT(EST) Raul Hindov


It is a race with a reasonable degree of difficulty, which includes many different relevant map elements in the race. Topographic, military (old Soviet), aerial, contour, O-Map, sketches, short recall, compass directions, shadow contours, Lidar contours. The terrain is typically Estonian with a lot of pine forest and minor other forest types, many marshes, lakes and small hills through out the area.The competition terrain is almost completely covered by forest, with a number of clearings of varying age. Runnability is above average, however some areas with windfalls occur. The numerous moors and bogs are without dangerous or impassable areas, however they may make your feet wet.
Some bog ditches may be quite wide, deep and with muddy bottom. However, the competition route runs mainly on dry areas (forest growing on sand and gravel). The relief is interesting. Slopes generally rise 10 to 15 m from the bogs, the maximum single slope is 25 m. The terrain is crossed by ski, trekking and off-roader tracks and a few larger gravel roads.

Dear Colleagues,

In Tallinn CIOMR will organize a CCC test, as has been done in previous years. It has been scheduled for Aug 8th 2019.

The test will be based on the CIOMR  CCC Manual (v3.2  2018).
The Manual follows the Tactical Combat Casualty Care Guidelines that have recently been accepted by COMEDS (the Surgeons General of NATO) as the standard for prehospital care. The Manual is also in accordance  with STANAG 2122.

On the CIOMR website ( -> committees -> operational medicine committee ->  resource page) you will find:
– the CCC Manual, with a Summary and Flowcharts
– a videoclip demonstrating relevant techniques
– a description of how the test is put together and how scoring is done

As soon as descriptions with detailed pictures are available of the equipment (IFAK: Individual First Aid Kit) that will be used during the test, they too will be put on the CIOMR website. That equipment will also be demonstrated preceding the test itself.

Three additional remarks:
– competitors will be assessed as a team and also individually
– this year extra attention will be paid to the correct sequence of
assessing a casualty (as described in the CCC Manual)
– competitors may encounter “external” (i.e. non-CIOMR) referees

As in previous years competitors will be briefed 1 or 2 days before the test itself.

With kind regards,
Col Lewis D. NEACE, DO, USAFR (ret), OMC chairman
Capt Dawn LEBLANC, Nurse Practitioner, CF, OMC secretary (vacancy) OMC vice-chair
