One of our main documentary photographers, Ricardo Segura took photos of our work during a mass disaster simulation of a flood and other traumas in the community of Los Angeles Hacienda Colima Suchitoto en Cuscatlan. Mulage makeup was completed by Edgar Jhony Ramos. Jhony has over 20 years practicing this art with the Comandos. We want to thank the community for their voluntary spirit this day in order to practice what could indeed happen in the future. The volunteers in the orange shirts work for the Municipal Emergency Comitee of Suchitoto. They were trained by Comandos de Salvamento in Disaster EMS techniques and management. The thumbnails are of the actual simulated drill. The two photos below are EMS situations in which Comandos find themselves every day.
