Civil Air Patrol Volunteer Now

Public Affairs


Civil Air Patrol now has an updated CAP Fact Sheet, containing the address and contact information for CAP National Headquarters, that can be printed on the front and back of a regular sheet of copy paper.   


With more emphasis being placed on planning in CAPR 190-1, NHQ/PA reminds DPAs and PAOs that there are online resources available to help with your Public Affairs and Crisis Communications plans. The latest tool available is this Region Crisis Communication Plan Template provided by Lt. Col. Al Nash, the Rocky Mountain Region's director of public affairs.

Other planning resources available include:


Civil Air Patrol now has a revised CAPabilities ops mission brochure available for use. It is available online in two versions -- high-resolution (printable) or low-resolution (suitable for a quick review).


Other program updates can be found at PA Essentials, the NHQ/PA blog.
