Reading Composite Squadron 811 is fully involved with the Emergency Services aspect of Civil Air Patrol, which encompasses Ranger Team training as well.

The Ranger Creed
It is my duty as a member of the Rangers of the Civil Air Patrol ground search and rescue service,
to save lives, aid the injured, and protect their property.
In order to this, I will keep myself physically fit at all times.
I will be prepared at all times to perform my assigned duties quickly and efficiently,
placing these duties before my personal desires and comfort.
These things we do that others may live...
