The Board of Directors of Comandos de Salvamento of El Salvador gave their delegations a batch of masks that were recently donated by the authorities of the Ministry of Health and Social Assistance.
The masks come to help first responders to be part of their biosecurity team during emergencies that are covered daily and due to the COVID pandemic, the protection of volunteers is urgent.
The President of Comandos de Salvamento, Licda. Rubia Guadalupe Palacios de Clímaco, affirmed that it seeks to strengthen the biosecurity measures of the first-aid personnel since most of them are young people who dedicate their free time to help those in need regardless of their race, religion or political creed.
Elements of the Ciudad Arce CDS base carried out disinfection operations in the facilities of the Baptist Tabernacle of Ciudad Arce.
This measure is due to the opening of the buildings this Sunday where the evangelical churches will be able to start their worship work taking into consideration of biosafety measures to avoid contagion of the coronavirus.
Our country registers more than 26 thousand positive cases of COVID-19, of which there are more than 700 people who have lost the battle, therefore, the health authorities have asked the Catholic and Protestant congregations to take all hygiene measures and distancing to avoid contagion.
Comandos will also provide the medical emergency service this Sunday at the Central Baptist Biblical Tabernacles, in its five services, where first responders will also ask for the use of masks and that the protocols established by the central TABER pastoral body are met.
CDS volunteers, members of the military, and people that live there collaborated together in doing a beach cleaning campaign starting in the early hours this last Saturday. Hundreds of people were armed with rakes, brooms to invade Metalio beach in order to clean five squared kilometers.
The purpose in cleaning up bottles, plastic, old shoes and other trash items was so that tourism could enjoy a clean beach. The vice minister of governing, Agustín Chacón thanked the local city hall for helping out in transporting the garbage away from the beach.
Comandos de Salvamento is a public agency that for more than 50 years has offered EMS and Community Health services via there main base and 32 other affiliated groups. The Mayor of Nejapa has decided to help the Nejapa Comandos base with a donation of 200 dollars that will go directly for ambulance gas. CDS Nejapa spends around a thousand dollars a month for gas doing local emergency runs within the Nejapa and Northern San Salvador area.
This will also help Comandos in Nejapa who will be very busy during semana santa while millions of Salvadorans take a week long vacation throughout the country.
