FY16 COWG PAO TRAINING ACADEMY COVERED ALL BASES - Posted on: Saturday, November 28, 2015

The FY16 COWG PAO Academy was held last Saturday, 21NOV at the South Metro Fire Rescue HQ Bldg and 35 senior member and cadet attendees representing 20 COWG units and one UTWG Squadron received training on all critical aspects of Civil Air Patrol Public Affairs and more. Poor weather the evening before the Academy precluded a number of those registered from attending and as a result a decision was made to offer the training via conference call and on-line. In addition, thanks to C/2ndLt Noah Parker of the Vance Brand Cadet Squadron, a video of the sessions was filmed and when edited will be placed on the COWG YouTube site. Many participants elected to pre-order this year's black PAO Academy polo shirts. Former KMGH News 7 TV Reporter Ronda Scholting who is now the PIO for the West Metro Fire Rescue was the featured speaker on working with the media. Those COWG squadrons who were not represented and did not participate in any way will need to contact their respective Group PAO for the valuable info that was imparted.

The Civil Air Patrol is a great way to serve America. Our three primary missions are Aerospace Education, Cadet Programs and Emergency Services. CAP is an all-volunteer organization, made up of everyday people with a wide variety of skills.

Federal, state and local authorities rely on the CAP's volunteer pilots and ground personnel to provide search and rescue assistance, disaster relief, homeland security, counter-drug operations support and cadet leadership training. The Colorado Wing of the CAP offers a wide variety of opportunities for citizens from all walks of life to serve Colorado, and America. With nearly 60,000 members nationwide, the CAP is one of the largest volunteer organizations in the country.

The Civil Air Patrol is an auxiliary of the United States Air Force, performing "Missions For America". In Colorado, the CAP is headquartered at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs. We operate 35 squadrons throughout the state.
 The COWG squadrons stand ready to
assist those in need. Missions range from search-and-rescue of lost hikers or hunters, location of downed aircraft and transport of emergency personnel or medical materials. When there is a disaster in a Colorado community, the State's CAP squadrons respond by transporting doctors, firefighters or emergency personnel to the areas in need.
Volunteers also perform homeland security, disaster relief, reconnaissance and counter drug missions at the request of federal, state and local agencies.
Our members take a leading role in aerospace education and serve as mentors to the almost 25,000 young people currently participating in CAP cadet programs.  CAP has been performing missions for America
for more than 60 years.
