COMANDOS DE SALVAMENTO will be doing a rescue simulation in order to prepare lifeguards and EMS personnel for the upcoming Holy Week
that is celebrated from April 5th to the 12th. The simulation will start this Sunday March 22nd at Playa El Majahual, department of La Libertad.
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.
COMANDOS DE SALVAMENTO invites all journalist and news agencies to cover the rescue simulation and the training that our volunteer
youth will have in order to offer their services during Holy Week.
