this will only make sense to AIIMS-trained people… part 3

The Operations Theme Tune

to the tune of “Revolution” by the Beatles

You say you want to work in operations
Well, you know
We’d all love to change the world
You set off on your Red Cross mission
Well, you know
Humanity can change the world
But when you talk about field communications
Don’t you know that we have to make it work
Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right
all right, all right

You say you can make quick decisions
Well, you know
Let’s see what your sitrep shows
You ask me what’s your limitation
Well, you know
let your operation grow!
But when you want coping booklets or a bigger team
You’ll have to rely on logs and planning – they’re so keen
Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right
all right, all right

Alternative lyrics from Lauren:

You say your role is Operatiooonns, weelll you know
You’ve got people on the ground
You will be given lots of informatiooon, welll you know
You gotta paaass it arroouuund
And it it’s time to give instructions
That’s what the briefings are all about!

You have to make a contributioooon, wellll you know
That’s important for the plan
Shoo be doo up, oh shoo be do up
Manage the communicatiiioooon, welll you know
You gotta do what you cannnn
Remember SMEACS FORMS and your tabard – red
Sit Reps handed in on time or you’ll be DEAD

I’m in the EOC! Alright!
Alright!
