Cusco, Peru - Structural Collapse/Trench Rescue and RIT - 2014
Global Mission Readiness trained in the high Andes city of Cusco, Peru to members of the Cusco Volunteer Fire Department #39 during May of 2014. In the planning stages for many months, this course focused on structural collapse & trench rescue, which will be enormously beneficial due to the many earthquakes affecting Peru. This training project was at the request of the Cusco Fire Department commander and included members from their fire department and neighboring agencies. These public safety entities would be assisting together in the event of a disaster.
