Emergency Services:  Protecting Life, in the air and on the ground as we perform missions for America

Emergency Services is one of the three missions of the Civil Air Patrol.  Emergency Services encompasses Search and Rescue (SAR) and Disaster Relief (DR). Emergency Services trains members in aircrew duties, ground team, flight line operations, and incident staff positions.  Qualifications are earned as a ‘specialty’, which typically lasts for three years.  Each specialty has a listing of criteria that is required to initially qualify, as well as continuing experience in order to renew or remain current.  These qualifications are independent of pilot requirements or professional development qualifications which may be required for advancement or operation in other areas of CAP.

Emergency Services works closely with the New Mexico Search and Rescue community.  We have representatives on the Governors SAR board and the New Mexico SAR Council.
