CAP Safety Pledge​  

As a Civil Air Patrol member I pledge to promote an uncompromising safety environment for myself and others, and to prevent the loss of, or damage to Civil Air Patrol assets entrusted to me.  I will perform all my activities in a professional and safe manner, and will hold myself accountable for my actions in all of our Missions for America.​

​National Preparedness Month . . .​  
Lt. Col. Willard Garman, Director of Mission Ops, FLWG


September is National Preparedness Month and the perfect time for us to engage our members as we enter the peak of the Atlantic Hurricane season.


Please review the FEMA e-mail (below) and get the word out to your members and units. I strongly encourage every member and unit to read and if possible, participate in any of the associated activities.

January through March is the time we do Annual Safety Risk Management Day. It is mandated by National that all members will conduct a Safety meeting dedicated to the issues of today and a refresher on the Basic Risk Management Process. Be prepared by completing the ORM Basic course on AXIS.
