Command task 11: Medivac

Equipment: None

Time: 5 -10 minutes

Where: A large, open flat area

Aim: Get the whole team safely across to the other side of the open area

Benefits: Logic and co-operation

Instructions: To cross the open area a person must be carried. The carrier must return and be carried across themselves. The only person allowed to walk across is the very last person. If the carried person touches the ground while being transported, both must return to the start. Cadets, who think this through and plan the order, rather than just launching in, tend to be far more successful.

Make it easier: Reduce the size of the teams

Make it harder: Impose rules on who must cross the open area first/last
