The National Headquarters Operations Directorate has begun hosting a variety of webinars to provide training to our members in need. These webinars can be found by clicking here.
In this post, we would like to highlight the webinar and materials associated with the Garmin VIRB Camera Kit and FEMA Uploader Training available at the link. As CAP is called upon to do this post-disaster photography mission at an increasing rate, this online training is very important for aircrews. Lt. Col. Eric Templeton, CAP, National Emergency Services Academy Mission Aircrew School Commandant presents a webinar hosted by Mr. John Desmarais, Director of Operations, covering this important material. Here is the webinar, it is an hour and fifteen minutes long so carve out some time to watch and absorb this very important information. Click here for the slides used during the presentation. Here are the FEMA Image Upload Instructions.
Almost 70% of CAP aircraft will receive these units. If you’ll be flying with CAP, you’ll soon come into contact with this technology so we recommend spending some time with this material.
