Operational readiness is mandatory for the successful accomplishment of the CAP mission. Personnel and equipment must be available and ready at all times. Preparations and procedures will be established to ensure prompt and effective deployment. A CAP wing alerting system to be used throughout the wing will be published to provide immediate response on a limited basis at all times and full-scale operations as soon as possible. Wing Alert Officers must be appointed in Ops Quals, and then prioritized and scheduled in WMIRS as appropriate. Unit Alert Officers for units below the wing level must be appointed in Ops Quals, but units can use local systems of their choice to schedule and prioritize them; there is not a mandatory national system for units.
