In early YC118, Forcha Alendare had a vision of a service that would provide a basic emergency resource kit for capsuleers stranded in wormholes, regardless of alliance, sovereignty, or play style. This vision quickly grew to become the Rescue Cache program as we know it today. Originally managed manually via a spreadsheet and a web form, the program had humble beginnings, but nonetheless managed to capture the imagination of many Signal Cartel pilots.
In late YC118, Forcha decided to move on to activities that would potentially bring him into conflict with the Credo, so he chose to leave the corp. The program languished without anyone tending it, and corp and alliance leadership decided it was too valuable to be allowed to wither away. Thrice Hapus was brought in to manage day-to-day operations.
Since then, the program has grown to what it is today. What started as one rescue program has now grown to become an entire division within Signal Cartel and encompasses both Search and Rescue operations and the original Rescue Cache program.
In December YC120, Igaze assumed leadership of the Rescue division. While he oversees the division as a whole, it takes a team to make it all happen. Our current roster includes the following dedicated rescue pilots.
