Civil Air Patrol, Alpha team staging search and rescue mission Nov. 8


On Nov. 8, the Alpha Team K-9 Search and Rescue of Atlanta and Civil Air Patrol Peachtree City Falcon Field Composite Squadron, will team up to coordinate life saving skills for a search and rescue exercise on a wooded private property.

When combined with Alpha Team K-9 Search and Rescue and Civil Air Patrol, larger areas can be covered in a shorter time due to the keen canine scent tracking and manpower in numbers trained for survival in the woods.

Alpha Team is a highly capable, professional response team with the experience and willingness to respond to all types of lost or missing person search and rescue emergencies. The Alpha Team can provide air scent, scent specific trailing and human remains detection K9 resources, incident command, navigational expertise, radio communications, ground searchers, and search and rescue specialist teams for urban, suburban, rural, wilderness and water search operations. Alpha Team K9 SAR (ATSAR) does not charge for services and will respond at no cost for all types of search emergencies.

Civil Air Patrol is an auxiliary of the United States Air Force which welcomes volunteers from 12 through adult in support of our three missions: cadet Programs teaching leadership, discipline and physical fitness to youth from 12-21; emergency services including search and rescue, disaster response and other missions and Aerospace Education (STEM) to the community at large.  The Peachtree City Squadron meets every Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Peachtree City United Methodist Church at 225 Robinson Road and welcomes visitors.
