Civil Air Patrol Drills In Gladewater

Some essential search and recovery training is going on in Gladewater this weekend.  For the next three days members of the East Texas Civil Air Patrol Cadets will be training in ground search and rescue techniques to aid in the search for downed aircraft in Gladewater.  Using homing devices, a mock ELT, or transmitter similar to that carried in planes, is placed in a heavily wooded area.  Cadet teams then conduct a ground search to find the device.

The Civil Air Patrol's job is critical to saving lives.  Training continues through Sunday.
