The Florida Wing in the news
The Florida Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Wing always remains
ready to assist in local emergencies. Since the recent hurricane (Mathew) areas
of Florida were hit with destructive winds and rain. In order for the
Governor’s office to provide information to FEMA, several CAP squadrons in
Florida were activated. The mission of identifying the areas needing assistance
was completed by the CAP officers and cadets. This was done by using CAP
aircraft equipped with sophisticated cameras and taking photos of the areas.
The CAP members are all volunteers and the aircraft and equipment was provided
by the United States Air Force. See the news report here.
