Operation Wolverine is back, Friday 20 - Sunday 22 May at Saint Clair International Airport, and now is the time to get involved! We are accepting all levels of cadet staff, from Mission Staff Assistants (MSAs) to Section Chiefs, please see the attached “Job Descriptions” document for more information on your desired role. Those applying for a Section Chief or Branch Director position will need to email a resume and brief statement of intent to the Incident Command team. Cadets can sign up for all other positions on a first-come-first-serve basis using the link to the Google form below. All applications and form submission are due no later than 13 April 2022. 

Minimum Requirement to participate is to have completed General Emergency Services Training (GES) found in eServices.

For those unfamiliar with this operation, it is Michigan's largest cadet-run search-and rescue exercise, designed to introduce and train cadets in all aspects of emergency services. This is the perfect opportunity to see what ES is all about, and to explore your interest in one of CAP’s main missions. From the most experienced to the newest cadet, there is a place for everyone at Operation Wolverine. If you are experienced and looking to challenge and expand your leadership skills at mission base, consider applying to be a Section Chief or Branch Director. If you want to be in the field, Ground Team Leader is an excellent opportunity to hone your tactical leadership skills. Cadets new to emergency services are strongly encouraged to participate, the Mission Staff Assistant (MSA) position will introduce you to all aspects of Incident Management Teams, allowing you to work closely with and learn from experienced cadets in each section. Don’t be concerned if you have no special qualifications in ES, training is just what Operation Wolverine is for, we urge you to sign up and get involved. This is also a chance to renew any GTM or ES qualifications you do have, by serving on a Ground Team. If you don't have any qualifications but are interested in first-response SAR, sign up to be a Ground Team Member. Air Operations staff is also needed.

Our Cadets will also have a large amount of opportunity to exercise their leadership training and practice their skills as this event is led by the Cadets!!  While there are mentors available, this is a CADET RUN event!  A great chance to show up others in your leadership abilities through successfully leading different aspects of Incident Management Staff and serving as Ground Team Leaders.

Cadet Programs and Emergency Services are two pillars of CAP, and Operation Wolverine combines them both to offer you the best possible training opportunity. This is a chance to take advantage of CAP’s amazing resources and let us support you in your continued education and training. If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask. Hope to see you very soon!
