Non Combatant Evacuation Operations


Non Combatant Evacuation Operations (1.1 mins)

Non-combatant Evacuation Operations allow Army to support Australian Government departments do their jobs in complex environments. On 17 June 2018 7th Brigade took part in one such scenario during Exercise Hamel at Elanora in the Shoalwater Bay Training Area outside Rockhampton, Qld. Exercise Hamel is a major Army exercise that is designed to evaluate the war fighting skills of a brigade. In 2018 the Brisbane-based 7th Brigade will be undergoing this evaluation. Major exercises such as Exercise Hamel allow commanders to ensure their formations and units are battle ready. These exercises are also the perfect activity to allow Australian forces to interact with allied forces that may participate. This year Exercise Hamel is taking place in and around the areas of Shoalwater Bay in Central Queensland from 18-30 June 2018.
