Search and Rescue Team members honed their search skills April 15, 2014 looking for camouflaged easter eggs. Eggs were camouflaged as part of a training exerise designed to improve observation skills for searching small objects.

On the morning of June 14, 2014, a field exercise was held at Homer Lake covering an area of 1.5 square miles, the Search and Rescue Team members were called upon to apply their skills in locating a missing subject. Skills that were utilized included use of radios, GPS devices and computers; the practical application of map reading and land navigation training and utilizing observation skills for searching and locating clues. To support this exercise the Champaign Communication vehicle (E-1) and local volunteer helicopter support were active participants.
