Have you ever watched a newstory about someone being rescued from a fall during a hike and been in awe of the responders? You can be a part of that response! Civil Air Patrol saves over 100 lives every year and does with an all volunteer force. In additiona, the Pell City Squadron is in need of pilots, aerial photographers, admin, personnel and finance volunteers to help them better serve their community, state and southeast region of the U.S.
As a volunteer with CAP you can participate in Search and Rescue missions, training and practice exercises; and disaster relief efforts as part of the Total Force. You can also provide training in Aerospace Education to members as well as school children and others in the community
If you’re up for the task, CAP offers ordinary citizens stimulating training opportunities few experience outside the military.
While the central focal point of our effort is training and preparation of aircrew for the Alabama Wing fleet, there are many roles available to non-flying volunteers such as in radio communications, logistics, planning, transportation, aerospace education, and mission observer or scanner.
Pell City Senior Squadron meets the first and third Thursday 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Pell City, Alabama.
We invite and welcome you to be our guest for an evening at one of our weekly squadron meetings. When you arrive, one of our members will give you a tour of CAP facilities, or if virtually, you'll get a chance to meet some of our members who can share with you specifics about their particular unit and answer questions you might have about the Civil Air Patrol.
