TNWG Emergency Services


Emergency services is one of the main missions of Civil Air Patrol. As you may know, Civil Air Patrol (CAP) is the Air Force Auxiliary and a national community service organization made up of professionally trained civilian volunteers. CAP has a modern, well‐equipped fleet of aircraft, vehicles and equipment that is exercised and utilized daily. CAP is a locally‐available talent and asset pool for federal, state and local government agencies. Within Tennessee Wing we have professionally trained national incident management system qualified personnel who can be rapidly deployed at any time throughout the State and, when necessary, beyond.
