Our mission is to integrate civilian volunteers into the Incident Command Structure (ICS) used by city, county, state and Federal disaster response agencies to act as a force multiplier. On April 6, 2019, Cajun Navy Relief will conduct its second annual Search and Rescue Games (SAR Games) in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
