Disaster Relief Teams and EMS/Rescue Training Volunteers 2016-12-31T02:00:41+00:00

ABOUT OUR DISASTER RESPONSE TRAINING PROGRAM

In a disaster, the first 72 hours after the event are the most important. That is when the most lives can be saved and the most property salvaged. It’s also that long before international disaster response teams can be mobilized—so we train and equip Central American Firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians.

This kind of immediate assistance and long-term training can save far more lives than a reliance on outside help. Not just in disaster situations, but also in the smaller-scale emergencies that happen every day.

Disaster Relief Teams - Paramedics for Children

PROGRAM DETAILS

Disaster relief placements require very specific skillsets and take place in difficult situations. Our training sessions require specialized knowledge and skills in emergency medical care and evacuation and/or technical rescue skills.

Over the past 20 years, we’ve received and placed into service 50 donated ambulances and trained more than 340 Honduran and Guatemalan personnel to the EMT or EMT-I level. We provide advanced rescue training to fire, civilian, and military rescue services—and while we are centered in Central America, on request we can provide a trained and coordinated disaster relief team anywhere in the world.

READY TO VOLUNTEER?

If you or your group is interested in partnering with PFC in these efforts, please email LearnMore@ParamedicsForChildren.org.

From EMT classes to haz-mat, structural firefighting to extrication, if you can do it and teach it, we can use you. Our disaster response teams are chosen largely from those who are also instructors and volunteers. From one week to a month or more, if you have the time, we have a job for you.
