This site was created on 6 May 1998 and moved to its present and
permanent home at www.CAP-ES.net approximately a year later.
Originally starting as a solitary page, there are now hundreds of pages
on this site. This website represents a new generation of information
technology. Emergency Services information was previously spread
through paper products--manuals, books, and leaflets. Today, we can
have instant access and instant updates to this information by access to
the internet. Coupled with the fact that this site presents
information that simply cannot be found anywhere else, it is a veritable
revolution in CAP Emergency Services. It is dedicated to Civil Air
Patrol Emergency Services operators--whether you fly an airplane, drive
a van, talk on a radio, or direct operations or fill out forms at
mission base--the Civil Air Patrol Emergency Services Resources Page is
dedicated to you.
Web page hosting has been
graciously donated by
Hensley, Elam and Associates, LLC

for the web host and Internic registration. No compensation or
advertising is allowed on this site; it is run purely by member
The color scheme for this website is no accident. Orange is a
very traditional Emergency Services color for a very good reason.
"Blaze" or "hunter" orange is a color that cannot be found in nature.
It contrasts with everything. It is the color of ES hats, signal
panels, and even some airplanes. I hate to say it, but the Navy
figured one good thing out when it did that. The blue accents on this
site were also chosen for a reason: it is Air Force Blue, representing
our parent organization. Together, these colors contrast very nicely
for readability and display our heritage.
The images on this site were taken from many different sources.
Most are original to the author(s). You will find that many
of the CAP logos on the internet today actually originate from this
site--which has been online nearly 10 years!

Of all the images on this site, one of particular importance is
the symbol pictured to the left.
"3 Diamonds, 3 Missions," it is a personal trademark of the publisher.
It is also steeped in tradition. The orange color of the diamonds is
significant because it is the color of CAP Emergency Services. Each
diamond by itself represents the main Emergency Services missions of
Civil Air Patrol--Search and Rescue, Disaster Relief, and
Counternarcotics. The three diamonds together represent the Civil Air
Patrol General Carl A. Spaatz award and its high ideals of leadership
and service. The tri-bladed propeller is familiar to us in Civil Air
Patrol, and is representative of the three equal missions in which we
participate--the Cadet Program, Aerospace Education, and Emergency
Services. The color red represents the bloodshed we aim to prevent and
contain through our altruistic efforts. The background white
represents purity and clarity--qualities we endeavor to always retain.
The blue circle in the center of the design represents the continuous
training that must take place in order to be prepared for potential
