    Throughout the weekend, the Bay Area’s Civil Air Patrol took to the East Bay skies for training exercises in preparation for natural disasters.

    The group took off from Livermore on Sunday and carried out search and rescue drills, defensive maneuvers and reconnaissance work.

    The Civil Air Patrol supports the Air Force during emergency situations, both locally and nationally.

    Sunday’s practice had fewer participants than usual because a real emergency called some of the pilots away from training.
