ALABAMA -- Thirty members of Civil Air Patrol's Alabama Wing took to Logan Martin Lake over the weekend to participate in a water survival training exercise made more crucial by a massive Deepwater Horizon oil spill not far away in the Gulf of Mexico. "Civil Air Patrol is constantly flying missions over the Gulf Coast right now," said Capt. Donnie Todd, Alabama Wing's standardization/evaluation officer who helped organize the certification course. CAP's Alabama Wing and Southeast Region have stepped up their training efforts this summer to prepare aircrews for participation in the Deepwater Horizon response. To date, 40 CAP volunteers have been involved in the response, contributing more than 3,000 man-hours to the effort.
