Jenks, Okla (September 17, 2021) – Two Tulsa area squadrons of the Oklahoma Wing Civil Air Patrol partnered together to conduct a multi-unit search and rescue training on Sept. 11 with ground teams and aircraft. Fourteen Jenks-based Riverside Composite Squadron senior officers and cadets joined five senior officers from Tulsa-based Council Oak Senior Squadron in the training exercise, performing a variety of tasks.
“We train so we can respond,” stated 1st Lt Yolanda Daves, Riverside’s squadron commander. “We do this so we can create the skills necessary to save lives in a moment’s notice.”
