How long will it take to evacuate an incapacitated client?
In the major cities, in rush hour, a patient would be in a clinic in under an hour. All evacuations depend on the situation and it is very hard to determine the length of time to get a patient or patients out. In the wilderness, depending on the difficulty and resources, it could take up to one day to have a patient evacuated to a place where transport could be waiting.
