Local Mishap Notification Procedures
CAPR 60-2 requires that each Wing publish local mishap
notification procedures. The Wing Supplement to CAPR 62-2 is
issued to comply with that requirement. >>See

- Job Security for CAP Leave
It is too early to make any guarantees, but
preliminary discussions with legislative leaders suggest that we may be
able to get a law guaranteeing leave for CAP volunteers to participate
in CAP missions. Colorado recently passed such a law, and we have
suggested that the same law be passed here in Nevada. Here is a blurb
on the Colorado law:
Colorado Governor Bill Ritter has signed
legislation into law that ensures job security for members of the
Civil Air Patrol who get called away for an emergency.
House Bill 1097 was sponsored by Rep.
Kent Lambert and Sen. Chris Romer. It provides job security for
members of the Civil Air Patro, and allows an employee who is a
member of the Civil Air Patrol to take a leave of absence from their
job for up to 15 days a year if they are called away to duty.
"We rely on the skilled members of
our Civil Air Patrol to help with search and rescue operations, and
with fire season approaching, this is a good policy to put in
place," Gov. Ritter said.
As you can see from the
attached letter, Ron Cuzze
is actively working this issue with the Nevada legislature. We just
want to keep our members informed that the Wing appreciates their
efforts and that we are doing our best to look out for their interests.
