Community Service

Civil Air Patrol serves the local community outside of our Emergency Services and Disaster Response Missions.

We provide Aerospace Education and Drug Reduction presentations to the community upon request and we provide manpower during community events such as air shows. Recently, several of our members provided perimeter security for the 50th anniversary of the Grand Fork Airport celebration.

Perhaps our biggest area of service to our community is via our assistance to the State of North Dakota during spring flooding. During flood season, our members assist local and state authorities by providing aerial photo reconnaissance of the Red River of the North and its tributaries, providing a photographic record of the changes in the river channel and extent of spring flooding, including ice jams and any potential trouble spots affected by rising waters.
