55th Rescue Squadron
The 55th RQS operates the HH-60G Pave Hawk and provides rapidly deployable combat search and rescue forces to theater commanders worldwide. It tactically employs the HH-60G helicopter and its crew in hostile environments to recover downed aircrew and isolated personnel during day, night or marginal weather conditions. The squadron also conducts military operations other than war, including disaster relief, counterdrug operations, and noncombatant or medical evacuation and provides close air support to assigned pararescue or ground forces.
