Virtual Table Top
Search And Rescue EXercise (SAREX)

SDWG will be holding a wing-wide virtual table-top. We are looking to fill all the positions you would see at any other SAREX so this would include ground teams, aircrews, and mission base personnel. For the aircrews, there is an opportunity to go fly a repeater but that will be on a first to sign up basis. We will also be using radios heavily for this table-top and we want to get as many radios out to people who are signed and ICUT trained as possible. Register here.

As reported elsewhere in this week’s Skychaser, the state’s COVID numbers have led the wing to a return to Phase I. This decision is not discretionary but rather is based on national policy. I was, however, able to delay the effective date until Friday to give our units that meet on Thursdays one more meeting at Phase II. (Read more)
