All requests must be submitted to the Illinois State Captain, any State Leader or Authorized Illinois Ride Captain. We will make every effort to honor each request, but current mission commitments, Ride Captain availability and timelines will be a consideration in the acceptance of a mission request. We normally prefer 24 hour notice to allow sufficient time to properly prepare. This applies to any request other than a KIA. The 24 hour rule may be waived in the event of extenuating circumstances. Once an invitation has been accepted, a Ride Captain/Ride Captain's of the IPGR will be assigned to the “mission” by the Regional Sr. Ride Captain. The RC will contact the Next of Kin to arrange a meeting. This is done to obtain the needs and wishes of the family.
