What's new in Safety

In the latest Beacon: - There are a few articles written about specific units, and there are a few articles written by safety officers out in the field. These are the kinds of stories that I would like to see more of! If you have an event you’d like to talk about, or a minor mishap you learned from, please let me know. Is there a case where you changed your safety plan because of something you learned? Is there a safety checklist that works well for your unit? Are your cadets involved in your safety program in a unique way? These are all things I’d like you to share. Send them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. - The safety survey will be on-line in SIRS on November 1. Read more about it on the first page of the Beacon. Set some time aside to meet with your squadron commander so you can work on the survey together. As I say in the Beacon article, this survey will be used by your wing commander to help him assess the “safety health” of squadrons in the wing, so use this opportunity to let your commander know the strengths of your program, the challenges you’re facing, and the needs they can help you with. More guidance will be coming in the near future, so we can make sure this is a useful, helpful tool rather than just a compliance exercise. - SIRS Suggestions? I remind everyone that we want to hear all your ideas on how the SIRS system can better serve you, so we leave no stone unturned when we redesign the system. Any ideas, or minor frustrations you have when you work in SIRS, can be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we’ll save each one. Thanks for all you do to reduce risk, and ensure all our members enjoy their CAP experience, “…without getting hurt!” Cheers, George George C.

REAL ID Act of 2015

Attention, all CAP members in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and  Rhode Island Wings:

Beginning on January 22, 2018, (Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and  Rhode Island) will be on travel restrictions due to the REAL ID Act of 2015. As a result, the drivers licenses in these states will no longer be accepted for airline travel and people in these states will need either a passport or a passport card to board a flight. This could affect CAP members traveling to the 2018 Legislative Day/Winter Command Council meeting March 1-3 in Washington, D.C., and/or any other CAP travel after Jan. 22 of next year. 

Please consider that there will be an expected rush on getting passports/passport cards in these noncompliant states, so everyone is encouraged to apply for a passport/passport card today.

Remember Safety at All Times

We take Safety very seriously and Safety is an everyday thing that needs to be included in everything that we do. Safety can not be neglected or bypassed just because it is more convenient to do so.
