The Mission of the Civil Air Patrol is to “support America's communities with emergency response, diverse aviation and ground services, youth development and promotion of air, space and cyber power”. This congressionally chartered, federally supported non-profit corporation that serves as the official civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force is a volunteer organization with an aviation-minded membership that includes people from all backgrounds, lifestyles, and occupations. Representatives from this proud and civic minded organization will be at the Fern Ridge Library on Tuesday, October 22 at 6:30 PM to inform our rural citizens about Emergency Preparedness. This event is designed to help you understand what infrastructure is in place, and what steps you need to take to remain safe in an emergency situation. Learn more about CAP and what they do to watch out for civilians in the event of a local or national emergency. In addition, find out how you, too, can get involved in the Civil Air Patrol.
