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.
CDS responded to an Mass Casualty Incident MVA that involved a bus and a car along KM 28 along the Pan-american Highway where a female and minor were DOA and others with multiple injuries. The incident took place near Santa Cruz Michapa in Cuscatlán.
CDS did what they could to secure, triage and securely package the injured and supported forensics in identifying the deceased.
Two DOAs were supported this Monday night at Blvd Federal de Alemania y la Calle los Naranjos in San Salvador. The Accident involved 8 other survivors in the same vehicle that crashed into an electrical pole.
DOAs were 21yo Javier Rosales, and 18yo Ulises Alvarado. The injured were Jefferson Edenilson Ruiz, Bryan José Alberto Ruiz, Josué Isaías Contreras, Andrés Alexis Segura, Yaneth Segura. They were all transported to Hospital Rosales and Benjamín Bloom.
Other patients like Godofredo Ayala, Consuelo Josefina, Emely Rosales y Henry Hernández, were attended to at the scene of the accident.
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.
