 CAP Safety Pledge:
As a Civil Air Patrol member I pledge to promote an uncompromising safety environment for myself and others, and to prevent loss of, or damage to Civil Air Patrol assets entrusted to me.  I will perform all my activities in a professional and safe manner, and will hold myself accountable for my actions in all of our Missions for America.


Safety Information and Reporting System (SIRS), CAP NHQ:
Welcome to your redesigned eService Safety homepage. Previously the “SMS,” this site is now called the Safety Information and Reporting System (SIRS). This name is a better fit for what we’re trying to provide- a one-stop shop for all your safety information, reporting, and education needs. This is a work-in-progress so please make suggestions. What would you like to see? What would you like us to add?

I’M SAFE! (ref: FAA):

Aircraft accident statistics show that pilots should be conducting preflight checklists on themselves as well as their aircraft for pilot impairment contributes to many more accidents than failures of aircraft systems.  The FAA I'M SAFE checklist, which includes all of the categories of pilot impairment can be easily committed to memory. See the FAA Aeronautical Information Manual for more information.

  • I – Illness
  • M – Medication
  • S – Stress
  • A – Alcohol
  • F – Fatigue
  • E – Emotion

If one or more of these items affect you either before or during a CAP activity, you have a responsibility to yourself and others to remove yourself from the mission.  There is no shame involved, and there will be no repercussions for reporting any effects.
