Emergency Services

 

     Emergency Services is the most commonly related mission to Civil Air Patrol. Civil Air Patrol volunteer pilots fly 85% of all inland search and rescue missions directed by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia. More than 90 lives were saved just last year through CAP search and rescue efforts. CAP members provide disaster relief support, including air and ground transportation and aerial reconnaissance, to agencies such as the American Red Cross and the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA).

     CAP transports time-sensitive medical materials in support of humanitarian organizations. The live organ transport program is credited with saving an average of 10 lives every year.
