Comandos de Salvamento again participated in the government sponsored good life festival this year with President Salvador Sánchez outside the old presidential house in the neighborhood of Barrio San Jacinto. Comandos were present to show first aid equipment, promote nursing and pharmacy educational services and also offer free family health consults.
Colors and children’s happy faces started the student parade that entered the Jorge “Mágico” González stadium that started the 196 year of Salvadoran independence. CDS offeres security throughout the stadium and had ambulances on scene.
Comandos and the FAS, Salvadoran Airforce, again collaborated on a simulated rescue mission within the stadium grounds.
Comandos de Salvamento SAR team participated in a rescue and evacuation exercise on floor 8 of the main government building down town.
The simulated exercises started with employees leaving the building to secure and safe designated areas while helping geriatric visitors. SAR workers arrived minutes after to assist. Bomberos, CDS, Red Cross and Green Cross also collaborated in the exercise in order to be more prepared when large building fire happens like the one earlier this year at Tres Torres Government buildings.
