Forward Deployable Preventive Medicine Unit (FDPMU)

The primary Forward Deployable Preventive Medicine Unit (FDPMU) mission is to provide Force Health Protection (FHP) by rapidly assessing, preventing and controlling health threats in a theater of operations and enhance organic preventive medicine assets’ capabilities.

Capabilities provided include:

-- Provides comprehensive, real-time health risk surveillance, including collection, analysis and recording of data on environmental health threats

-- Disseminates preventive medicine information, including epidemiologic assessments, obtained during deployments to sustain the health of the force and prepare for future deployments

-- Uses state-of-the-art technology to provide detection, quantification and reporting capabilities for environmental contaminants, diseases, pathogens, disease vectors and chemical (including radionuclides) and/or biological agents far forward to enhance decision analysis

-- Identifies potential health threats, develops courses of action, and advises Commanders of the risks and available threat countermeasures

The basic FDPMU configuration is a 13-member team composed of five distinct components: preventive medicine, chemical (including radiological subcomponent), microbiology, disease vector and logistical / administrative support. FDPMU can deploy as a task-organized preventive medicine unit composed of one or more its components. Personnel assigned to individual components are added or omitted as dictated by the mission.
