SALVAMED was founded by Mark Hoffman and Josue A. Martinez, Veteran members of Comandos de Salvamento EMS Association based out of San Salvador El Salvador.
Josue has been a Comando since 1979 and Mark lived at the Base Central for five years from 1996 to 2001. Both continue to collaborate with the Comandos on a yearly basis. Other supportive members include Medic Devin Price and Dr. Andres Marin out of California who teach EMT-B classes and have supplied donations since 2001 to improve the quality of services CDS offers.
SALVAMED is currently registered with the Washington State Charitable Donations Program. While our current grassroots operating budget is small we always welcome volunteer consultants regarding a possible 503 (c)(3) future.
