Our mission promotes international cooperation, recognition and association.
Our mission began by answering the call. It was 1994, we were contacted by an organized group for training so that group could provide Open Water Surf Lifesaving protection to a popular beach just south of the boarder. People were drowning on a weekly basis and that was not accepteble. The training and support, donations of equipment by municipal agencies in the US, and direct staffing and supervison by Paramedic International cadre saved hundreds of lives, prevented suffering by families who might have lost a loved one or the main economic support memeber of their family. Durring this four year project we advocated and advised local government on how to establish a dedicated program of public safety to the area. We trained personnel of the local Fire and EMS service in Open Water Lifesaving, scuba, SAR, and rope rescue. Missions were flown in a Bell UH-1, providing public safety and training to the area on a level that had not been available before. Many of those original personnel who received that training are on the job today, saving lives! The spirit of that intial response to the call lives on today in our dediciated cadre.
