There are the pilot, copilot, and crew chief on board of every helicopter of the Corps, but there is no EMT. In an air rescue mission, a crew of medical specialists is requested from supporting agencies, such as Ministry of Health and Welfare, Coast Guard Administration or National Fire Agency, as appropriate to go on a mission together.
