Comandos de Salvamento helps rescue the injured patient.
Comandos de Salvamento’s High Angle rescue team helped rescue a female near la zona del Ingenio El Ángel de Apopa after she had lost her balance on an iron bridge and fell. CDS collaborated with the Red Cross in offering the patient not only first aid, but emotional support due to injuries sustained.
The rescue took approximately 40 minutes to help 48yo Marisol Santos Fuentes Reyes, who suffered a compound leg fracture. The patient was secured and transported to higher level of care at 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.
57 años al servicio de la gente, felicidades Carlos Fuentes y todos los que hacen posible el trabajo para rescatar a las personas que se encuentran en riesgo. Francisco Campos Comandos De Salvamento Base Central
Two Germans became missing Tuesday afternoon around the Chaparriastique Volcano in San Miguel. Comandos de Salvamento, National Firefighters, and other first responder groups participated in the search.
Luckily the Germans, Jens Bauer and Anika Jentner, were located and examined by our Medics to rule out any injuries or illnesses.
