Emergency Detachment-Alphas, or "A" Teams
The Core of CAGs competencies derived from our Special Forces founders is the concept of "Everyone a Leader, Everyone a Teacher!"
The goal and focus of the formation of the A-Teams is to:
- Provide a core of well trained, competent, law abiding citizens. Prepared to Assist communities and authorities, Lead, and Teach in a Crisis/Disaster Situation.
- Provide Team members with a support group focus and skills pool to better care for their families, and their communities.
- To produce, mentor and foster subject matter experts among the teams to become leaders, trainers, and better people in their own right.
- To prepare CAG A-Team members to function more effectively in core Leadership and Subject Matter Expert competencies in a Crisis/Disaster situation.

- Team level Group Purchase discount codes, which are higher percentages than standard member discounts. These purchases must be arranged in advance with the CAG Main Staff. *Terms and conditions may apply
