4 Jamestown, 24 MAY. Several members from Southtowns went to Jamestown to train their members as well as the Canadian Air Cadets. 1 new GTM3 was approved. SAREX 7-8 JUN: WNY Group covered all but one of our assigned targets. Attendance was low, but understandable considering timing of event VS school graduations, finals, SAT/ACT testing. Lt Col Diane Wojtowicz acted as IC for our base, brought an incredible amount of knowledge and experience with her. Advanced our knowledge and abilities several steps. Lt Col Bill Hughes attended on Sunday as our pilot. Both had many compliments for WNY group and are planning on coming back to assist us. We had a trainee on every air sortie, several members completed their final qualifying flights, approval by wing is pending for most. Ground team training was slightly limited due to a change from our normal routine, ground teams were used for disaster recon and photography. Excellent training opportunity, we need to work in more camera training for GT's. Mission Base Staff did an outstanding job! Col Perta, Lt Col Carello and NER Chaplain flew in to Akron base, many compliments from all. Col Perta singled out our safety briefing as Excellent in the after action report and hot wash. Multiple new qualifications were earned including PSC, AOBD, GBD, MSA MS, MO, MSA & LSC. Identified issues - Communications, need better co-ordination with adjoining group. Unsure of how to achieve this, multiple messages ignored by other group. Also need VHF antennas dedicated to Akron, HF antenna also being looked into. Need more MRO's. Base Staff, need more practice on paperwork, looking into tabletop missions for training. Ground Teams, start working camera training into training schedule. Outstanding work by Capt Tom Leach, Lt Col Jerry Terhaar and 1st Lt Jeff Luke. Skills Evaluator Appointment process update.- The 'Train The Trainer” course and advanced ORM are NO LONGER required! NYW requests only one member per group approve new evaluators, please send any requests to Lt Schmid. Units, Please DO NOT use Skills Evaluator appointment section of ops quals. Message sent to all unit commanders, deputies & ES officers. SARTAC is being reevaluated by NYW. New Incident Commander appointment/training procedure.- NYW has removed the requirement that IC3 trainees attend the SARTAC mission base staff school. New trainee candidates must be currently qualified as an Operations Section Chief, and a letter of recommendation must be sent by unit commander (deputy in case of unit commander appointment) to Lt Col Pecoraro for approval and then sent to Lt Col Bill Hughes for final approval. Training will be done by a qualified IC evaluator over the course of two separate missions. Updates to SQTR/approval procedure. - NYW no longer requires that individuals scan and upload their SQTR's. This is however a good practice to keep as evaluators can refer to the scanned copy when approving/validating tasks. If they don't remember signing you off, they cannot approve the skill! Attendance at training missions - We need more members active in ES. As members move up to higher qualifications, we need to be able to back fill the previous positions, especially the higher mission base staff positions. Unit commanders, please encourage your members to participate. We have the capability to bring the basic training to your units. WING WEST In the 1980's WNY was considered the go to unit for emergency Services, our the Group commander, Lt Col Ezzo declared us as “WING WEST”. With some hard work we can bring those days back again. Upcoming Events - Constant Watch 14 - HF Communications exercise moved to 21-22 JUN. Airborne repeater will be downstate in support. Local HF units may participate. NYW SAREX, 12-13 JUL. Preliminary plans indicate this will also be a disaster recon/photography exercise with plans for each group to photograph their entire shoreline. WNYGroup has one of the longest shorelines to take care of, from the NY/PA border running up Lake Erie, the Niagara River and Lake Ontario to the Niagara/Orleans county border. This will be a flight operations intensive SAREX. Ground team operations will also be part of the mission. Unfortunately, this also means 222NY will not be available for the Dunkirk Fly In, also we will not be able to do flight line marshaling at that event due to lack of available, trained members and liability concerns. Finally, a very special Thank You to Lt Col Charlie Jones for his years of hard work and dedication keeping the WNY ES program running. Group Emergency Services 1/4

11 Transportation – Van Policy - For the last three years, Lt Cols Maternowski and Terhaar have paid a substantial amount of money due to the reluctance of other units to contribute to the operation of the van. This is not fair. - It is incumbent on all the units in the group to make efficient use of this asset. Your sqdn/flight has the ability to request use of the van for a specific stated purpose - all that is required is that you inform Lt Col Terhaar and make arrangements to pick up the van when you require it. - Your responsibility is to carry the cost of fueling the van during the period in which you wish to use it. - Our Mission Readiness rating depends on our ability, and willingness to make efficient use of the assets provided to us by NY Wing, and the Air Force, and act IAW the new NYWg Policy of the use of the van emailed two weeks ago. In the future I need: 1. All units must use this asset when needed, especially when placed on a mission. 2. Refuel the van when required – whenever you use the vehicle. 3. Shared responsibility. If we aren ’ t stewards of the Air Force ’ s assets, the van might be removed from the Group which will make us non-mission ready/capable and no longer a viable ES asset.
