Volunteer pilots, photographers aid Alaska Shield disaster exercise [Image 1 of 5]
ANCHORAGE, AK, UNITED STATES
Ron Preston, a Civil Air Patrol mission pilot, flies on a mock damage assessment mission as part of Alaska Shield March 29, 2014. Preston and other volunteers fly photographers over critical infrastructure such as energy facilities and then document damage and send their data to federal officials for analysis. Alaska Shield 14 is an exercise that involves state, federal, military, and local agencies, designed to test response and coordination efforts during a disaster and is modeled after the 1964 earthquake and subsequent tsunami that devastated much of South Central Alaska.
