615th Contingency Response Wing

Mission
The 615th Contingency Response Wing is one of two Contingency Response Wings (CRW) assigned to the Air Force’s Air Mobility Command. Headquartered at Travis Air Force Base, Calif., the CRW’s primary mission is to employ rapidly deployable cross-functional teams to quickly open forward airbases in an expeditionary environment to meet combatant commanders’ needs. The 615th CRW reports to the 15th Expeditionary Mobility Task Force at Travis AFB, CA. 

The 615th CRW opens forward bases and extends existing AMC infrastructure via rapid forward deployment capabilities, and presents core airbase operating forces to war-fighting combatant commanders to meet the nation’s National Security requirements. The 615th CRW employs mission-ready airfield assessment teams, airfield operations, command and control, aerial port, and aircraft maintenance personnel, as well as airlift, weather, medical, intelligence, air traffic control, security forces, finance, fuels, supply and contracting personnel to project and sustain forces worldwide. 

With an assigned military and civilian work force of more than 650 personnel, the 615th CRW is composed of three Contingency Response Groups, a Global Support Squadron and a command staff. The 615th CRW commander may deploy as the Director of Mobility Forces, a Joint Task Force Commander, or a Joint Forces Air Component Commander to rapidly establish air mobility operations in support of contingency efforts, humanitarian operations and combined, joint, and USAF exercises.
