State and federal - is to provide trained, well-equipped men and women who can augment the active force during national emergencies or war, and provide assistance during natural disasters and civil disturbances.
The WA ANG, when directed by state authorities, provides protection of life and property, and preserves peace, order and public safety. State missions, which are funded by the state, include disaster relief in times of earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and forest fires; search and rescue; protection of vital public services; and support to civil defense.
As part of the total Air Force, the WA ANG provides operationally-ready combat and combat support units and qualified personnel for active duty in the Air Force to fulfill Air Force war and contingency commitments. WA ANG units are assigned to Air Force major commands during peacetime to accomplish this mission. The major commands establish training standards, provide advisory assistance, and evaluate WA ANG units for unit training, readiness and safety programs.
