Members of the South Dakota Wing completed FEMA's G0361 - Flood Fight Operations class at the state emergency operations center in Pierre on February 13 and 14.

“In 2024, South Dakota wing’s premier missions are support for state and local agencies, and flooding is a critical area where we have operational capabilities beyond the resources of local agencies,” said Col. Michael Marek, CAP’s South Dakota wing commander. “Thank you to Lt. Col. Myra Christensen, Maj. Richard Rezac and Capt. Jon Becker for taking the time to complete this valuable training and to build more bridges between CAP and the emergency management community.”

The class addressed basic flood concepts, coordination with multiple agencies, flood threat analysis, expedient flood works and their monitoring, and the recovery process. The class featured a combination of lectures, discussions, activities, and exercises. Emergency managers from across the state attended.
