DISASTER

RELIEF

0,

EUSTIS, rLA--La~e County Florida experienced 1tS largest forest fire in history Monday, April 23rd when 3000-4000 acres of once beautiful forest land were destroyed ~y wildfire.

Civil Air Patrol personnel from Group 20 assisted the Lake County Civil Defense Coordinator and County Commissioners as well as American Red Cross officials, in setting up an emergency shelter for hundr ed s of evacuees. Initial' reports caused the volunteers to prepare for 200 families. Fortunately many were able to find accomodations and less one hundred took advantage 'of the temporary beds set up at the Lake County Fair Grounds.

Cadets operated radios, served as runners, directed traffic and set up cots; unloaded trucks and generally made themselves useful to Civil Defense and the Red Cross.Senior members helped man telephones, fly evaluations of the situation, and plan w~th of,ficials on what actions were needed to prov1de for the citizens of Lake County.

Left to discuss

it 'Banks, Dickens and Rigdon as~ignments during the fire.

Cadets Cota and Hill help unload trucks full of blankets and cots for the victims of the forest

fire. '

The assistant medical officer of the Lake Senior Squadron lLt Edith Noffsinger provided personal attention to some of the senior citizens who in their hasty departures forgot needed medications. Lts. Alan and Renee Bailey helped keep the cadets supervised and functioning smoothly. Captain Herman Rigdon served as communications officer and assisted in assignment of cadets. Overall commander of CAP personnel was handled by Major Moseley, Group 20 commander. Captain Arnold Wolfgong flew the R~d Cross Disaster Coordinator Mr. Obie Brown for an aerial reconnaissance of the area.

This was the first time Lake County Civil Defense had called upon the Civil Air Patrol for assista~ce and comments indicated that CAP cadets had impressed, officials with their sense of purpose. Cadets were from the Mid-Florida Cadet Squadron, commanded by lLt Renee Bailey.
