Again, in collaboration with the Comandos, the Salvadoran Air Fore will be assisting CDS in making air transports via Helicopter @ sea and
on the beach.  CDS will be training over sixty lifeguards and training them in simple beach rescue to deeper rescues simulated in the ocean.

A provisional clinic will also be setup in order to simulate medical attention brought to those that are rescued.  More than two hundred volunteer youth will be participating through the community education school in Comandos called “Yolanda Elizabeth Velásquez”.  Triage will be done to separate patients that are subacute, and acute. The acute patients will be transported to a local hospital.

Presidential Elections 2009

The Comandos were present throughout various voting centers to offer community support throughout San Salvador and the country.  The voting centers opened at 8am and stayed open until 5pm. A historic moment in Salvadoran history when the FMLN candidate Mauricio Funes won the presidency over Arena candidate Roberto Avila.
