Fire in a hard to get area needs spotting? Hikers got lost? For those reasons and many more one of the first responders to call is Wyoming's Civil Air Patrol. 

They are a Civil Air Patrol (CAP) squadron in the Wyoming Wing of the Rocky Mountain Region.

THE MISSION of the Cadet Program is to develop character through leadership training while providing service to our nation, the United States Air Force, and the local community. The Cadet Program works to develop a pool of young, dynamic aerospace leaders for the future.

United States citizens or aliens admitted for permanent residence, between the ages of 12 and 18 years of age are eligible for initial cadet membership. Individuals who join CAP as a cadet prior to their 18th birthday may remain cadets until their 21st birthday.

You don't have to be a pilot to join the Wyoming Civil Air Patrol. They are always looking for good people that want to help serve their community. Just visit their website to find out how to join.
