AZ Wing supports Precautionary SAR on Colorado River

AZ Wing CAP members were eyes in the skies and on the ground for a three-day precautionary SAR mission along the Colorado River during the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Based out of the Lake Havasu airport and a Mohave Sheriff’s Department joint operations center, ground teams (including K-9s and their handlers) and flight crews worked with local, state, and federal agencies to ensure a safe holiday weekend for people celebrating on the river. It was also a chance to work with┬áthe new DAART (Domestic Operation Assessment & Awareness Response Tool), which is designed to provide simultaneous sharing of full-motion video, imagery and situational awareness information┬áto Incident Management teams.
