COMANDOS OBTAIN EXTRICATION EQUIPMENT

Spread the love

Posted by Carlos Fuentes on Tuesday, October 22, 2019

Hurst Extrication equipment arrive at the Central Base of Comandos in San Salvador.

In a question of minutes a life can be saved or lost during motor vehicle accidents and we have been able to acquire some extrication equipment with sponsorship from People’s Norwegian Aid.

Said equipment will be used by our urban rescue squad to help extricate patients safely and efficiently. We thank Jeff Pugh, of The PXTeam for the equipment, Mark Hoffman for mediating the purchase and Rony Calderon with a group of Friends in Los Angeles that were able to coordinate shipping of the gear from Washington State to San Salvador.

Se dará mayor capacidad de respuesta en casos de accidentes de tránsito.

LINE OF DUTY DEATH: FIRST RESPONDER HONORED

Spread the love

This last April, CDS experienced another LODD, Line of Duty Death with Moisés Abraham Orellana trying to rescue two people taken by a riptide at Majahual beach in La Libertad.

The youth was very popular at our local base in El Congo , Santa Ana where he originates from and he was also a member of the National Institute music band.

Representative party GANA member of the Salvadoran General Assembly, Juan Carlos Mendoza, offered a minute of silence for his parents who were grateful for the gesture and asked that his memory stay strong since all he wanted was to serve his fellow Salvadorans. Immediately after required EMS courses, he put on his yellow uniform and went to work.

Juan remains a strong presence at our brother’s and sister’s local base of El Congo, Santa Ana and we and El Salvador thank you for your service.

Moisés Abraham Orellana.
