Seamlessly integrate war-time ready Individual Reserve forces to meet Air Force and Combatant Commander requirements.
Individual capability, leveraged worldwide.
The Headquarters Individual Reservist Readiness Integration Organization (HQ RIO) is located at Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado. Its mission is to seamlessly integrate wartime-ready Individual Reserve (IR) forces to meet Air Force and Combatant Commander requirements.
HQ RIO is responsible for managing the readiness of the IR force and standardizing the processes associated with getting our IRs to the fight. Seven detachments and eight operating locations at geographically-separated bases around the world assist the headquarters in this mission, providing direct oversight and support to more than 8,000 IR Airmen. The headquarters is located within the Air Reserve Personnel Center, where synergies are leveraged across the personnel and finance functions.
The IR force is comprised of Air Force Individual Mobilization Augmentees (IMAs) and Participating Individual Ready Reservists (PIRRs). Both IMAs and PIRRs augment active-component missions and are rated by active-component or government agency supervisors.
