* There are various other organizations which exist to serve as volunteers or auxiliaries during emergencies. For example, the [[http://www.arrl.org/ares Amateur Radio Emergency Service]] and the Military Auxiliary Radio Service both serve to provide government agencies with additional/backup communications support when needed. ARES can be particularly helpful during natural disasters which might wreck local communications infrastructure because Ham radio operators often practice traveling to austere locations and setting up radio stations, complete antennae and power supplies to communicate with (this practice is known by hams as a "{=DXpedition=}")

** Those brightly colored civilian airplanes they fly around in? During UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, they became something of a LethalJokeCharacter, when the CAP flew yellow-and-red Piper Cubs off the coasts looking for German U-Boats. There was little one of these planes could do to a U-Boat, given that they were unarmed (at first), but they could use their radios to [[SummonBiggerFish call for the]] [[DeathFromAbove Air Corps]], who would happily send a bomber to blow the interloper out of the water. By the end of WWII, the Civil Air Patrol was able to claim two German U-Boats sunk directly by CAP aircrews. Since the end of WWII, CAP's mission has been revised to be strictly non-military in nature.

** Those brightly colored civilian airplanes they fly around in? During UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, they became something of a LethalJokeCharacter, when the CAP flew yellow-and-red Piper Cubs private planes off the coasts looking for German U-Boats. There was little one of these planes could do to a U-Boat, given that they were unarmed (at first), ([[NotSoHarmless at first]]), but they could use their radios to [[SummonBiggerFish call for the]] [[DeathFromAbove Air Corps]], who would happily send a bomber to blow the interloper out of the water. If all else failed, CAP crews could [[RefugeInAudacity make unarmed mock attack runs at the subs]], spooking them into crash-diving and making it harder for them to track their targets. By the end time the CAP's Coastal Patrol mission ended in August of WWII, 1943, the Civil Air Patrol was able to claim two German U-Boats sunk directly by CAP aircrews. Since It is worth noting that deploying the end CAP to patrol against German warships, and later arming the civilian aircraft with bombs and depth charges, was seen by military leadership as a desperation tactic, driven by the sheer shortage of WWII, CAP's mission has been revised military manpower and equipment to be strictly non-military in nature.patrol even US coastal waters.
** Other missions by the CAP included towing targets to help train Army AntiAir gunners (the inexperienced gunners only occasionally [[TrialByFriendlyFire tagged a CAP aircraft instead of the towed target by accident]]), performing patrol flights to assist border patrol personnel and to keep an eye out for forest fires (the US's woodlands were considered a strategic resource, and fighting wildfires required manpower and resources desperately needed for the war), as well as providing cargo flights for small but important cargoes between bases or factories.

** The CAP itself was formed via the mass merger of many smaller CD-oriented aerial organizations, to include national organizations such as the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association's Civil Air Guard and state organizations such as the New Jersey Civil Air Defense Services (the latter considered to be the blueprint that the rest of CAP was organized according to)
