Everyday Heroes, Every Day!
Civil Air Patrol Emergency Services conducts approximately 90 percent of all inland search and rescue in the United States, as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and other agencies. CAP's missions include both Air Force assigned missions (damage assessment, light transport, communications support, and low-altitude route surveys) and those in support of other state, federal, and local agencies (such as disaster relief, medical materials transport, and assisting in homeland security and anti-drug missions). CAP ES is credited with saving an average of 80 lives per year -- in fiscal year 2008, 91 lives were saved, with 24 being saved by the Colorado Wing!
Whether you are interested in serving in an air search crew or as part of the Pueblo Eagles' long tradition of outstanding ground teams, the Civil Air Patrol and the Pueblo Eagles Composite Squadron can assist you in training for these important missions.
