Search and Rescue (SAR)
CAP SAR missions are coordinated through the Air Force Rescue
Coordination Center (AFRCC). CAP flies 86% of the air search in the
continental United States and in many states CAP is also involved
in both ground search and rescue operations. In 1995 CAP
volunteers flew more than 2,200 missions, logging in 12,519 flying
hours. During these missions, CAP members were credited with
saving 108 lives.
CAP supports disaster relief efforts around the United States with
manpower, communications, material transport, damage
assessment, and personnel transport. CAP units have assisted in
disasters such as the Mississippi Flood of 1993.
CAP supports civil defense agencies with communications,
radiological monitoring and decontamination, damage
assessment, and airlift..
Civil Air Patrol's Emergency Service role can be split into five
distinct areas, each of which members train and prepare for.
