Emergency Services

The Emergency Services Directorate is a component of the Alaska Wing Operations Branch. Emergency Services is one of the three primary missions of the Alaska Wing. The mission of the Emergency Services Directorate is to develop and maintain Alaska Wing capabilities for incident command and emergency response in the air and on the ground, in fixed facilities and in the field, to meet the needs of our supported agencies at the federal, state, and local level.
