On Saturday 4 MAY 19, 832 Clarence-Rockland air cadet squadron conducted a live dynamic search and rescue (SAR) training scenario during a weekend survival exercise. The training scenario simulated a missing cadet during a routine weekend exercise in a remote location. To simulate real-world realism, and to assess the performance of officers, staff and cadets, the training scenario was treated as a live emergency.
The training scenario has provided the Commanding Officer (CO) with invaluable feedback to make operational recommendations and to ensure emergency preparedness for future exercises. The squadron staff were extremely impressed with the performance of the cadets during the drill and are pleased to say the training scenario was a success. The following performance objectives were achieved during the scenario: C390.13 (Act as a member of a ground search and rescue party), C390.12 (Perform minor first aid in a field setting), C490.03 (Move a casualty to shelter), C190.01 (Participate in a presentation given by a member of a survival organization/search and rescue) and M103.03/M203.08 (Participate in team building activities). The cadets followed directions and orders efficiently and promptly, many taking leadership roles leading to a successful recovery of the “lost cadet”. Constructive feedback and an open discussion took place with the cadets immediately following the simulation.
If any parent/guardian has any questions they may reach out to the public affairs officer (email@example.com) , or commanding officer directly (firstname.lastname@example.org).
