Emergency Services
Assistance to state and local agencies

 

Civil Air Patrol can provide many types of assistance to state and local agencies.  CAP has been serving the State for over 50 years performing missions to protect and aid the citizens during times of need.

 

To request CAP emergency support, Please call

CAP National Operations Center 888-211-1812

 

 

Today, CAP can provide many services at little to no cost to you.  CAP regularly performs missions to assist with Disaster Relief and Search and Rescue.  CAP provides training aircrews and aircraft.  Our aircraft cost a fraction of what it costs to operate helicopters.  CAP also provides trained ground search teams.  In addition, we can provide trained overhead (Search\Incident Management) personnel that will coordinate operations for missions/incidents.  All of our personnel are NIMS compliant volunteers, which greatly limits the costs of our operations.

 

Some of the services we can provide are:

  • An extensive nationwide radio communications network

  • Mobile communication equipment

  • Aerial reconnaissance (digital photography)

  • Air and ground transport of emergency personnel and equipment

  • Air and ground search and rescue

  • Disaster relief assistance

  • Search\Incident Management Personnel

CAP can provide additional services as well.  To discuss these roles, please feel free to contact the Group 1 Commander.


If this is an emergency, call 888-211-1812
to reach the CAP National Operations Center.

 

But, perhaps the best part of what CAP can provide, is that it can provide assistance at little to no cost to you in an emergency.

 

 

How do You get assistance?

 

First, you need to decide what sort of service you need and whether CAP is the correct organization to provide that service.  Once you make the decision that you want CAP service, you then must determine who to contact.

 

If you are a local government entity, you must contact the IEMA Emergency Operations Center (EOC).  The 24 Hour Duty Desk number for the EOC is 217-782-7860, or 800-782-7860.

 

The next step is to contact the appropriate agency to request CAP assistance.  For Search and Rescue call the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center (AFRCC) at 757-764-8112 or 800-851-3051 (these numbers for emergencies only).  For disaster assistance contact the Air Force National Security Emergency Preparedness Agency (AFNSEP) at 800-366-0051 or 404-464-4342 during business hours.  If during off hours, page the duty officer at 800-688-1364 and wait 15 minutes.  If no response, contact the U.S. Forces Command (FORSCOM) Duty Desk at 404-464-5222.

 

These two agencies issue CAP a mission number that will allow us to assist you.  If you need further assistance or are unsure of who to contact, the state EOC has our Primary Alerting Roster.  You can contact the CAP National Operations Center (NOC) at 888-211-1812.

 

Our missions are normally funded by the federal government through an AFRCC or AFNSEP mission number.  Some of our missions are funded by the state or another agency.

 

If you have any questions on this, please contact the Group 1 ES Officer,
Lt Col Ted E. Lohr at 618-920-3748 or at sartech2@gmail.com
