TRAGEDY IN NEJAPA/RECOVERY IN PROCESS

Landslide in Nejapa. A Mass Casualty Incident.

Since this last Thursday night, more than 100 of our volunteers have been currently recovering victims from a landslide that covered homes in Nejapa north of San Salvador in the  neighborhoods of Los Angelitos 1 and 2 . 9 bodies have so far been recovered  of around 30 that are missing.  We are working side by side with family members, Red Cross, National Firefighters in coordination with the National Response Emergency System .

Families affected have been sheltered in the polideportivo and also local churches .  Donations acquired by CDS are being coordinated by our staff in order to bring clothes, food, and disposable diapers for babies.

Comandos will continue over the next days to continue searching for the missing.

Please donate to our cause on the left side of this post through our gofundme.

Mass Disaster Fire Simulated Excercise

Members of CDS SAR team coordinates with the on scene simulation director.

Comandos de Salvamento SAR team participated in a rescue and evacuation exercise on floor 8 of the main government building down town.

The simulated exercises started with employees leaving the building to secure and safe designated areas while helping geriatric visitors. SAR workers arrived minutes after to assist. Bomberos, CDS, Red Cross and Green Cross also collaborated in the exercise in order to be more prepared when large building fire happens like the one earlier this year at Tres Torres Government buildings.
