Comandos de Salvamento along with help from salvamed.org and Glasswing International sponsored a 2 day course on Vehicular Extrication at Ilopango Airport December 7th and 8th. Groups represented were The Green Cross, the UMO branch of the National Civilian Police, Bomberos Nacionales, and Comandos de Salvamento. Over 80 students learned how to size up a motor vehicle accident, and safely use electrical, hydraulic, and manual tools to help save lives. Comandos personally thanks Hi-lift, AJAX, Ringers, and HURST, for creating great and dependable equipment used in the course and also used every night after each class to do real extrications. The Puyallup Extrication Team sent 6 of their top instructors for the Workshop. Present were, President Jeff Pugh, and instructors, Ryan Taylor, Andrew Krasner, Charlie Kemp, Gus Alcala and Anthony John. PXTEAM donated an AJAX Neumatic Air chisel, some sawzaw blades, Comandos thanks Mark Hoffman of Salvamed and Nick Fling and Celina de Sola of Glasswing International for making this big project a success. Mark was also able to get the Urban Rescue Squad another Medium First Responder Jack from Hi-Lift which was recently used to lift a car off of two motorcycles.
