Casualty reports

The casualty report, or CASREP differs from the ACE report in that it is specific to the status of casualties in an element is a quick and focused report that is designed so that a leader can quickly find out the specifics of casualties have been taken.

 

  • CASREPs are used when a leader only needs to know casualties and is not concerned with ammo or equipment
  • CASREPs are used when a leader needs to know the specific extent of the wounded
  • CASREPs are also used for medical units, such as ambulances and evacuations to convey the severity of the casualty situation

 

When sending a CASREP, you must send it using the correct casualty triage category, as per Triage SOP.

 

Squadleader requesting a CASREP from a Fireteam

In the following example the SL, 1, is requesting a CASREP from his second Fireteam, 1-2.

 

1-0: 1-2, this is 1-0, send CASREP.

1-2: 1-0, this is 1-2, WAIT OUT.

(30 to 60 seconds pass while information is gathered)

1-2: 1-0, this is 1-2.

1-0: 1-2, this is 1-0.

1-2: CASREP 1 dead, 1 immediate, 2 delayed and 1 minimal.

1-0: ROGER, OUT.

 

Fireteam asking for assistance

In the following example the second Fireteam, 1-2 is request medical assistance from his SL, 1-0, and is refining the request by giving a CASREP.
 

1-2: 1-0, this is 1-2.

1-0: 1-2, this is 1-0.
