We thank Joshua Bennett and Juliana Schatz Preston for creating this documentary short that will give the viewer an honest portrait of the work we do in El Salvador. Some viewer discretion is advised since it shows the reality of EMS work in San Salvador. It will be announced on January 22 2019 if the documentary is nominated for an Oscar.
About 7 members of the National Civilian Police have resulted injured due to an gunfight altercation in the Colonia San Patricio in Southern San Salvador. For now all we know is that a male officer has lost his life and a female officer has been transported to the ED at Seguro Social Hospital.
CDS dispatched more than 5 ambulances and more than 20 first responders to the scene to evacuate the injured officials.
EMS staff from CDS rescued 50yo Mario Antonio Ramirez after he was buried under a wall that he was working on when it fell apart. The incident happened at la 23ª. Avenida Norte and cross street la Alameda Juan Pablo II en San Salvador. The patient was immediately packaged and transported to Rosales Hospital.
34 volunteer members were recently certified as formal members of Comandos de Salvamento and will be added to our high angle rescue team.
Practical classes were offered at the Puerta del Diablo . Seven of the 34 volunteers were female candidates who showed they were just as able to do their work as their male candidates. Congratulations and welcome to the Comandos Family.
A large fire destroyed a pallet manufacturing plant this afternoon near KM 26 along the Highway between San Salvador and Sonsonate near Lourde, Colón, in the dept of La Libertad.
The fire started at the Tarimas El Angel business mid day and employees tried to put it out but instead decided to save their lives instead. Comandos arrived in order to manage crowd control and help local firefighters control the fire. 5 ambulances, 3 water tanks, and 2 firetrucks were on scene to support.
