Con el objetivo de buscar la reducción de accidentes de tránsito así como las quemaduras producidas por la pólvora Comandos de Salvamento El Salvador lanza su campaña “Tu Ángel Guardián”, que tiene por objetivo provenir y llevar auxilio a las personas que se encuentran en peligro o que han resultado lesionadas.
La Campaña “Tu Ángel Guardián” se desarrollara de diciembre de 2011 a diciembre de 2012, haciendo énfasis en las tradicionales vacaciones de los salvadoreños durante las fiestas de fin de año, temporada de Semana Santa de 2012 y las Fiestas Patronales dedicadas a El Salvador del Mundo de 2012 así como las fiestas navideñas de ese año.
Durante la campaña Comandos de Salvamento repartirá entre el pueblo Salvadoreño 120 mil hojas volantes con consejos para evitar accidentes de tránsito como: El uso del cinturón de seguridad, No manejar en estado de ebriedad, No invadir el carril contrario, Evitar el uso del teléfono celular mientras maneja, etc. Y Otros recomendaciones para los veraneantes en las playas y para los que queman pólvora y otros que puedan causar accidentes.
La campaña también tiene por objetivo dar a conocer nuestro nuevo numero para atender emergencias que es el 2133-0000, aunque siempre estará disponible el 2221-1310, Es importante para toda la población reconocer este número y tener la confianza de que en caso de emergencia será atendido la rapidez del caso.

CDS Medical Brigades traveled to the areas of Puerto Parada and Berlin in the dept. of Usulután to offer medical consults to those affected by tropical storm 12E.  Flooding in these areas have affected those communities by damaging their homes and increasing the risk of illness.  The Comandos did general health consults in the community center of Berlin and also El Icaco where many patients came from outlying smaller communities that are called cantones in Spanish.  More than 500 patients were prescribed medications.  Peoples Popular Aid of Norway sponsored the medications at a cost of more than 5,ooo$ and CDS is thankful for this collaboration to help meet the needs of Salvadorans.

The Tin Marin Childrens Museum located in Cuscatlan Park in San Salvador decided to send some staff members accompanied by Comandos de Salvamento to entertain children affected by flooding in Bajo Lempa. The entertainment took place in the shelter of San Juan del Gozo. Piñata breaking and face painting took place after 400 small toys were given out. CDS supports such endeavors since it addresses the mental health needs of those that have lost homes and belongings to natural disaster flooding. Salvadorans are one of the most resilient people in the world, and usually bounce right back to normal life fairly quickly. These events augment this process of recovery. Comandos Medical Brigades plan on doing visits over the next few days to prevent possible epidemics and mitigate negative physical and mental health symptoms as a result of the disaster.

On Sunday October 16th 2011, Comandos de Salvamento joined forces with Radio Corporación FM employees to hand out donated clothing, food and water at emergency shelter Centro Escolar Profesora Evangelina Alvarez in the neighborhood San Juan de Dios in the town of Olocuilta . Since radio continues to be the most efficient means of communicating rapid grassroots mobilization in El Salvador, Radio FM’s listening audience donated much needed supplies for displaced families caused by the recent tropical rain storm that has drenched El Salvador over the last few weeks.

More than 500 plates of hot food were recieved by Salvadorans in the Bajo Lempa Communities of Zamorano and El Mario. The food was prepared and donated by the Señora cooks of the San Miguelito Market in San Salvador. Every year during the rainy season, these humble business owners take it upon themselves to organize a massive cookoff to help flood victims wherever they might be sheltered. The Comandos de Salvamento accompanies distribution of these prized plates of hot rice, beans, carne asada and tortillas. The institution also acts as a cultural mediator for those business leaders who want to express their solidarity by going to distribute the food themselves. The cooks also donated a piñata to meet the mental health needs of affected children so that they can have a sense of joy while placed in storm shelters. Foto: CDS

The beaches of El Salvador are densely packed during vacations. Our Lifeguards are trained in shallow and deep water rescues and have made over a few hundred rescues so far this year. If you are ever at the beach, keep out an eye for the “Yellow Baywatch”.
