Comandos Leave for Mexico

With their faith in God and the courage of a typical Comando this morning, a small contingent from our main base left this morning to Mexico City to join in on Search and Rescue/Recovery efforts already underway for the last 24 hours when the earthquake hit Tuesday September 19th.

Comando Veterans included Roberto Campos, Jhonny Edgar Ramos, Carlos Vásquez, Roberto Márquez, Josué Najarro and Edwin Portal. One by one they gathered their belongings and said goodbye to their families. One of their children wrote a message on a prominent social networking site, “We will pray that you return dad, you are an example to follow by dedicating your life to save others, I love you and await your return.”

This Wednesday afternoon, a second group of Comando volunteers will be sent to Mexico to help in recovery efforts.

El Salvador’s USAR team which is composed of members from Comandos de Salvamento are heading to Mexico City in collaboration with other groups in order to help the public that were affected by two earthquakes.

These young volunteers have been specifically trained in the search, rescue and recovery operations and will be dispatched in a few hours in order to help our Mexican brothers and sisters that have been affected by three earthquakes within the span of one month. More than 100 have been killed or disappeared.
