Introduction: Air Medical Deployment Support Unit (UMAAD) of Zaragoza has a 20-feet ISO container, expandable (6 in 1) to use as a Role 1 (Primary Care and Emergency) in the deployment of any detachment of Spanish Air Force. Material: Definition of internal arrangement, auxiliary systems and supplies for a Role 1 mounted on a 6 in 1 container. Functions: The UMAAD's 6 in 1 container is an element of great utility, versatility and functionality in order to have enough space in a very short time to deploy as a Role 1, with powerful inner transformation that makes it very useful for primary care and emergency staff deployed in a mission. Deployment time and installation of the container, depending on the topography of the soil, can vary between 30 and 120 minutes, and the installation of equipment and auxiliary systems required to be operational in about 2-4 hours. Personnel required for this installation would be about six people. Also this material can be transported by land, sea and air making it very suitable for its use by the military. Conclusions: The 6 in 1 container usage as a post of Primary Care and Emergency (Role 1) improves the quality of patient care and extends the function capability that can be performed on projected operations staff of the Air Force and, in general, Armed Forces.
