Each year, the Nevada Air National Guard is involved in the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense program, "Boss Lift" for business people in the Nevada community who employ Nevada National Guarsdsmen. The event includes an explanation of what their employees do one weekend a month and two weeks a year in the Guard, along with occasional deployments. Most of these events include a C-130 flight over Lake Tahoe.
In the past, the Nevada Air Guard has also provided personnel to help erect playground equipment at a Stead elementary school and assessed numerous Innovative Readiness Training requests, which specifically call for engineer support. These requests can be as simple as remodel work for charitable organizations or as complex as preparing the Sierra Nevada Girl Scout Camp Wasiu on Gold Mountain. Each year, the 152nd Civil Engineer Squadron helps get the camp in working order, utilizing several Air Force specialties with work on the camp's septic tanks, plumbing, tent platforms, pool upgrades and repairing damage done by winter snows.
