Based at Patrick Air Force Base, Fla., the 920th Rescue Wing is an Air Force Reserve Command combat-search-and-rescue unit comprised of 2,000 Citizen Airmen. Its primary mission is combat search and rescue - to search for, locate and recover U.S. Armed Forces and coalition personnel who become isolated during military operations. Air Force rescue is the only DoD entity specifically organized, trained and equipped to conduct personnel recovery operations into hostile or denied areas as a primary mission.
The 920th also provides safety and security surveillance of the Eastern Launch Range during all rocket launches from the Space Coast. The unit's other peacetime missions are providing civil search and rescue support for those who are lost or in distress, and providing humanitarian and disaster-relief operations.
The Media Relations Section of Public Affairs provides news releases on newsworthy Air Force missions, programs, and activities. It works with the news media to provide interviews, coordinate visits and to respond to queries. We seek every opportunity to tell the Air Force story by reaching the public through local, regional and national news media organizations.
