                      Land vehicles, amphibious vehicles, medics on foot, and pilots who decide to land at cartels are all considered ground units.

              3.2.  Illegal areas defined:

                              3.1.1. Rebels

                              3.2.1. EMS text

                              3.2.2. Direct chat

                              3.2.3. Warning shot

4. Medics taken into illegal areas during hostage situations cannot be killed by their captors unless APD negotiations have

    failed, they refuse to provide medical services, or they attempt to escape.

5. Special Circumstances:

             5.1. Federal Reserve: Medics shall not enter the Federal Reserve, Telos, or the immediate area around the Federal Reserve

                   during an active robbery unless they are assisting the APD or being held hostage by civilians.

             5.2. Maximum Security Prison: Medics shall not enter, or loiter around, the prison, beach, or land, bridge while an active

                   prison break is in progress unless they are assisting the APD or being held hostage by civilians.

             5.3. Blackwater: Medics shall not enter, or loiter around, the Blackwater facility while an active robbery is in progress unless

                   they are assisting the APD or being held hostage by civilians.

             5.4. Rebel Outposts: Medics shall not enter, or loiter around, any rebel outpost while an active rebel raid is in progress  

                   unless they are actively assisting the APD or being held hostage by civilians.

             5.5. Cartels and Warzone: Medics who are flying within 1km of a cartel, or within any part of the War Zone must be given 3 warning shots or an EMS text                     with a warning along with sufficient time to react in order to leave the area, before lethal force is authorized.

                              5.5.1.  Medics who are on the ground within a 1km radius of a cartel can be killed without engagement.

                              5.5.2.  Medics who are on the ground within any part of the War Zone can be killed without engagement.

6. Medics that are assisting the APD are not allowed to enter and assist civilians between APD waves unless taken hostage.

7. If a medic has arrived at a rebel outpost to revive a civilian, and it becomes apparent that the APD is conducting a rebel raid, the

     medic must leave the area and contact the APD to ascertain whether or not responding officers would like R&R assistance during

     their engagement.

8. Illegal areas are inherently dangerous locations.  Medics are not required to respond to illegal areas to answer calls for service.

    Those who choose to enter an illegal area are acknowledging, and accepting, the inherent risk.  Medics shall evaluate the

    situation and use discretion while operating within illegal areas.  Medics who are accidentally killed, or RDM'd, in the line of duty

    may return to the area immediately.  Medics who are legally killed are bound by NLR and must wait a minimum of 15 minutes

    before returning to the location to continue answering calls or to retrieve equipment.


This handbook update was focused mainly on improving the clarity and accuracy of Chapter 3.  No significant changes were made but all medics are encouraged to read and re-read this chapter so they can apply this knowledge in the field.  Changes are in red.  Thank you.
