    Members of Ohio Wing,

    The Emergency Services Directorate is pleased to offer two essential courses as part of the GLR PDO Weekend at Mansfield-Lahm ANG Base during the weekend of 26-27 APR 14.  

    LTC Mike Ullman will be teaching a Mission Pilot's Course designed to provide ground training for those who aspire to or are currently training for a Mission Pilot qualification.  You will find LTC Ullman to be an experienced professional and his course will prepare you for the skills required by CAP Mission Pilots.  

    We will also be holding a two-day Incident Staff Training session for persons interested in mission base operations.  The Incident Command System and its application to CAP missions will be thoroughly detailed and a simulated mission will be conducted.  You will have the opportunity to complete SQTR tasks related to your focus area of mission base training.  In addition, time will be spend learning how to maximize mission organization using Google Drive.
