(One is given in the title for you)
Augmentation platform fill rates and Training Readiness
What data system does Budget Submitting Office 18 (BSO18) use to base their readiness requirements off of?
Sourcing Commands, because they supply the bodies for deployments and augmentations, must have Deployment Support Centers (DCS) set up within the command. Who is responsible for establishing the guidelines for developing these Deployment Support Centers?

The CRO will provide a letter of assignment (LOA) identifying their platform assignment/status, responsibilities, uniform, and training requirements for all CUIC personnel, within how many days of reporting to the command?
10 days
As a medical augmentee assigned to the Marine Forces (MARFOR) you could be attached to one of four divisions within the Marine Force. Name the four divisions.
Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF), Marine Division (MARDIV), Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), or Marine Logistics Group (MLG)

Level 2 health service support (HSS)
HSAP billets assigned to USMC units will be filled with qualified personnel at a minimum of______ percent peacetime and_______ percent wartime?
80% peacetime and 95% wartime
All Hospital Corpsmen will be qualified Field Medical Service Technicians (NEC 8404), so that they may be assigned to what two units?

Level 1 health service support (HSS)
What unit assumes the name of the primary sourcing command for the manpower set?

Expeditionary Medical Facilities (EMF) provide up to what level of health service support (HSS)?
Level 3 health service support (HSS)
OCONUS MTF’s provide personnel augmentation and expanded bed capacity for three of our overseas United States Naval Hospitals. Which hospitals are we referring to?
Yokosuka, Okinawa, and Guam
OCONUS MTF’s provide up to what level of health service support (HSS)?

Military Sealift Command (MSC)
Truer or False: Navy Medicine Support Commands (NMSC) primary mission is to provide trained personnel to the Operating Forces.
USMC assigned Medical personnel casualties who need to be replaced are also known as_____?
BSO 27 personnel
Explain the normal service procedures for requesting replacement augmentation personnel for HSAP personnel casualties or depleted BSO 27 and USMC.
(In other words…If something happened to a deployed augmentee, how would you go about getting a body out there to take his place?)
Your request would go through the chain of command by UIC & BSC to OPNAV (N3/5). OPNAV (N093) then validates the requirement (the skill needed to fill that slot) and BUMED-M1 will source (recruit the skill needed from sourcing commands) the requirement through NAVMED Regions.

BSO 60, 70, & 74 personnel (Atlantic Fleet, Pacific Fleet, and the Naval Special
Warfare Command (NAVSPECWARCOM)

Forward deployed crisis response forces that are mission capable and ready to deploy within 5 days.
Routine Deployable
What is the Medical Fleet Readiness Plan (MFRP) designed to develop and sustain in Navy and Marine Corps HSAP platforms?
Forces designated for the force build-up stage that are ready and capable of mobilizing and deploying within 30 days.
Surge Ready
Additional forces designated for further follow-on stages that are ready and capable of deploying within 120 days.
Emergency Surge (A good way to remember would be to say…”In case of an Emergency” Surge)
True or False: Ships may take the maximum number of days allowed to prepare for deployment. (Example: A ship preparing to deploy on an emergency surge can adequately prepare and be ready to ship out, but to maximize liberty for the crew the CO decides to take the full 120 days before deploying. Does the CO have the right to do so?)
False, the ship is required to deploy as soon as it is possible
What is the purpose of the Status of Resources and Training System (SORTS)?
SORTS establishes joint readiness reporting requirements for reporting readiness of personnel, training, and equipment
SORTS provides how many measures of unit readiness categories, indicating the unit’s self-reported ability to execute its mission?
Explain SORTS category C1
C1. The unit is capable of undertaking the full wartime mission it was organized and designed for. It is considered fully mission capable
Explain SORTS category C2
C2. The unit is capable of undertaking the bulk of its wartime mission. It is considered substantially combat ready with only minor deficiencies reported
Explain SORTS category C3
C3. The unit is capable of undertaking a major portion of its wartime mission. While it has major deficiencies, it can still perform its assigned mission
Explain SORTS category C4
C4. The unit is unable to perform its wartime mission unless it is provided additional resources or training. However, if the situation warrants, the unit may still be required to perform portions of its mission using its existing resources.
Explain SORTS category C5
C5. The unit is not able to perform its wartime mission and is not mission capable. Routinely this status is assigned to ships in major overhauls, which cannot be deployed because of the need for substantial maintenance
Our two Hospital Ships (T-AH) are also subject to readiness categories, which in addition must be capable of supporting a certain number of beds per readiness category. List the number of beds that forces are required to support for the all three readiness categories.
When a Hospital Ship is Routine Deployable forces support a 250 bed configuration
When a Hospital Ship Surge Ready, forces support a 500 bed configuration
When a Hospital Ship is in an Emergency Surge category, forces support a 1000 bed configuration
True or False: Two Expeditionary Medical Facility (EMF) systems are maintained in Routine Deployable status for 1 year. The rotation plan will be staggered so one EMF will rotate on and off “Routine Deployable” status every 6 months.
How many EMF systems are maintained in Surge Ready status for 1 year?
No matter what Readiness Category an EMF falls under, how many beds must their forces support within their set amount of notification days?
