Field Operations Resource Guide For Emergency Managers NORTH CAROLINACAPABILITIES
The Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is a national organization that represents a locally-available talent and asset pool for municipal, state and federal government entities to utilize as a cost effective aerial and ground resource. CAP is available to assist state and local authorities perform Various Reconnaissance, Emergency Services, Disaster Relief and Homeland Security missions. When tasked by the Air Force, CAP, in its Air Force Auxiliary role, can support Federal authorities to include assistance to state and local Authorities requested by a lead federal agency (LFA). INTRODUCTION
Types of missions CAP can carry out • Airborne reconnaissance of isolated locations, border and coastal areas, ports and harbors and critical infrastructure to help identify suspicious activity. • In-flight disaster and damage assessment with on going visual reconnaissance, airborne still imaging with near real-time satellite Downlink. • The Geospatial Information Interoperability Exploitation - Portable (GIIEP) system is a man-portable, multi-band receiver capable of ingesting a variety of visual and textual data which will enhance CAP's ability to respond to disaster situations and provide annotated and compressed imagery products (both still and video) that can be quickly disseminated to mission partners. The inherent flexibility of the system allows operators to tailor their efforts to take maximum advantage of available assets and available communications as they support disaster response operations.
Communications support; VHF and HF capability and Aerial communications relay platforms. Command and control CAP units with ICS-qualified Incident Commanders. Damage assessment and mitigation, disaster recovery and limited security with trained ground teams able to augment civil and military authorities. Points of Distribution for Local Governments to run Type 3 and untyped POD’s after disasters. Ground Search and Rescue with NASAR qualified search teams and CAP trained ground teams. All members are unpaid volunteers, therefore Missions can be accomplished at a fraction of the cost of other agencies. types of missions (cont.)
