Nationally, CAP handles 90 percent of inland search and rescue missions, with approximately 75 lives saved each year. Our members are generally the first on the scene transmitting satellite digital images of the damage within seconds around the world and providing disaster relief and emergency services following natural and man-made disasters.  READ MORE ABOUT CAP EMERGENCY SERVICES...

Civil Air Patrol (CAP) conducts a variety of operational missions primarily in the areas of Emergency Services (Search And Rescue (SAR), Disaster Relief (DR)), Counterdrug (CD), and Homeland Security (HLS).  Most of this is done in CAP's role as the United States Air Force Auxiliary as Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA) under Title 10, but CAP also provides assistance to State and Local authorities in many cases before there is a defined Federal interest under Title 36 as well.  In order to conduct these missions, there are many programs and personnel that provide Operations Support.  CAP has consolidated information, guidance and tools that our support personnel need to do their jobs.  Visit CAP Operations Support for more information.

Each Civil Air Patrol member's Emergency Services qualification is associated with a series of knowledge and skill tasks.  These tasks serve as the basic minimum qualification to the ES specialty.  The tasks are contained in “Task Book” for each specialty.  Also each person must be signed off on a Specialty Training Qualification Record (SQTR).  The person is trained on each task by one person and then evaluated by a Wing appointed examiner to determine if they know or can do.
