BEMCC Thanks the Binational Community
On March 26, 2008, BEMCC hosted a honorary luncheon. A Certificate of Appreciation was given to the
California Fire Department, UCSD Burn Center, Desert Angels Rescue Team, San Diego Police, District Attorney officials,
Television, radio and newspaper representatives, and other local citizens. Humanitarian awards were given to the unsung heroes of our Binational Community.
The award states: "This day we honor those who served during the October Fires of 2007. Some say none of us imagined that this could happen to us. Many lost their homes and everything they owned. Others lost their lives."
We want to thank the fire fighters, doctors, nurses, social workers, law enforcement officials, volunteers, federal, state, local government agencies and the local citizens who were there to give a helping hand to the survivors of the wildfires. We thank you.
Celia Diaz speaks at Flying Samaritan Seminar
Celia Diaz, founder of BEMCC was invited to be a keynote speaker at a Flying Samaritans seminar at Estero Beach in Ensenada, Mexico. Celia told the group her incredible stories of how she assists people in Mexico during medical emergencies. Most people do not realize the difficulties and the red tape involved when trying to rescue an injured person out of Mexico. The "Flying Sams" are an inspirational group of people that are doing great work in Mexico. Find out how YOU can get involved with a
