This week's Midtown Raleigh News published a nice article about this summer's mission trip to Guatemala by Garner-based Rescue Extrication Delivery Specialists (REDS). There they helped train 50 military members and firefighters on rescue techniques, such as vehicle extrication.This was the team's second trip, having first traveled there in 2009 to train military personnel. This year, they expanded the training to include firefighters, and expanded the rescue techniques taught. As the article notes, as their week-long visit concluded, each team member was awarded the Ambassadors of Peace to Guatemala Award. They are the only people in the United States to have received the honor. Nice work, gang. Read the entire article, or see our prior posting about their trip.
