The alarm wakes me at 04.00 am
The taxi arrives at 04.45 am
At the airport this nice greeting from a Starbucks employee makes me smile for the first time this morning. ( even though my name is spelled wrong) 🙂
The plane departure at 06.10 am
From rainy Bergen
«Good morning winter Oslo»
Time for the certification of our NOR EMT (= Norwegian Emergency Medical team)
We meet up precisely 08.00 am at Thon airport hotel for extradition of our personal equipment- hereby referred to as; PE. ( from now on its only military jargons that applies) 🙂
And than we were off to our camp location:
All day, evening and some of the night we spent building the camp:
Totally exhausted we crawl into our sleeping bags at 01.30 am
I am so grateful that I don’t have guard duty this night ( I have been awake for nearly 22 hours by this time)
But my guard duty comes soon enough – the next night from 04.00 – 05.00 am
Even though I am very tired I actually enjoy the beautiful moonlight and the fact that I actually know how to handle the «heater» for the tents and the power units. Witch I learned day 2.
At this time feel pretty good about my self 🙂
Time is of the essence and the next morning we realize that we have to hurry…
The big exercise starts at 11.30 am day 3
representatives from WHO and EU is coming
We are going to be certified to travel anywhere in the world were there is a catastrophe, to help people in need, with our transportable hospital/clinic . ( our worst case scenario not get certified…)
The tents are up, but the clinic inside the tents are far from ready…
And we work very hard for many hours to get it ready…
WILL IT GET DONE??????
Read my next blog post on Saturday and I will tell you all about the exercise and the result.
Have a wonderful week everybody!!
