Comandos de Salvamento would like to formally thank the North American company of Hi-Lift and their vice president of marketing Steve Dowden for the donation sponsorship of a First Responder-Hi-Lift Jack. Operated by only one person, and under specific situations, the jack can be more useful than pneumatic tools or Jaws of Life. International Representative Mark Hoffman was able to mediate the sponsorship via Jeff Pugh of the Puyallup Extrication team in Washington State. Jeff has extensive use of the jack along the I-5 corridor between Olympia and Seattle. In exchange for the jack, CDS will offer Hi-Lift images taken of the jack being used in San Salvador for international marketing purposes. CDS first found out about the First-Responder Hi-Lift Jack when Comandos Mark and Josue Martinez did a presentation for PXTeam back in January 2012.
