ASAN, Guam (March 26, 2014) – Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 25 assisted in the medevac of a woman from Rota who required medical care March 26.

A Navy MH-60S helicopter was launched from Andersen Air Force Base at approximately 9:10 a.m. Navy personnel assessed and stabilized the patient and transported her to U.S. Naval Hospital Guam. She was then transported via ambulance to Guam Memorial Hospital for treatment.

The incident was the ninth medevac executed by HSC-25 personnel this year.

HSC-25 is the Navy’s only forward-deployed MH-60S expeditionary squadron. As a part of Helicopter Sea Combat Wing Pacific, it provides an armed helicopter capability for U.S. 7th Fleet in support of logistics, search and rescue and humanitarian assistance missions.

HSC-25 is also the only squadron that maintains a 24-hour search and rescue and medical evacuation alert posture, directly supporting the U.S. Coast Guard and Joint Region Marianas.
