Last year we introduced you to our friends at the La Ceiba Honduras Police department.
We made a great connecting with their leadership and wanted to serve the department at a greater capacity.
Our organization has donated time and resources to renew their on site clinic as well as have a medical exam table donated.
The police in La Ceiba, as like any department, are tasked with a very difficult and dangerous job. These officers are diligent to serve their community and we are committed to serve them.
This week we had the opportunity to engage on the next stage of our plan to serve and prepare this police force by teaching CPR and trauma training to their officers.
Led by Brittany and Gretchen of our World Race group, our team taught the valuable life saving techniques of CPR to several of the departments officers.
Patrolling the vast, populated, and rural area of La Ceiba with this new training will make missions safer and more productive.
The Police Department staff has described scenarios in which officers have lost their lives in the line of duty simply due to being too far from aid after taking gun fire. With this new training it should allow officers to receive better in field aid and allow officers a fighting chance when they encounter injuries.
Thank you to all who have donated and served Connect Global.
