Carroll Compoiste Squadron

2013 William R. Hicks Emergency Services Award Recipient


Civil Air Patrol (CAP) conducts a variety of operational missions primarily in the areas of Emergency Services (Search And Rescue (SAR), Disaster Relief (DR)), Counterdrug (CD), and Homeland Security (HLS). Most of this is done in CAP's role as the United States Air Force Auxiliary as Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA) under Title 10, but CAP also provides assistance to State and Local authorities in many cases before there is a defined Federal interest under Title 36 as well.

In order to conduct these missions, there are many programs and personnel that provide Operations Support.

Carroll Composite Squadron conducted two sorties one to Cecil County Airport and on return at Route 40 and Route 272 in North East. Squadron members heard a beacon signal and prosecuted it to find the beacon under a boat at the Anchor Marina. Second Sortie was to conduct a Ramp Check at Clearview Airport and the Squadron members heard another beacon and found it in Morgan Run Park.
