Missionary Medic Paul "Pablo" Heier

We've been involved in helping to train first responders since 2005.  We currently work with a number of Guatemalan firefighters, police officers, and lifeguards helping them to be better prepared to provide first aid and emergency medical treatment.  We are constantly looking for volunteers and equipment (see bottom of page for list).  We'd love to help you plan a trip to volunteer with us for a few days or a few weeks.  You can teach, train, do ride alongs, and have a first hand look at remote and urban EMS in Guatemala.  You could even take one of our wilderness classes and update your CPR while you're visiting.  Would love to chat with you about it, please feel free to email me from the contact page.

Internships for Medics, EMT's, Nurses, and Medical Students

We welcome inquiries from allied health professionals who would like to serve in our remote community health clinics.  These internships help you to understand the health crisis in Central America and to improve your critical thinking.  Interns follow patients through triage, help order blood tests, and attend visits to the specialist with patients.  Those who successfully complete the program receive a certificate of completion.  Programs are available between one week and one month.

Brad Ross, RN (Florida), BSED

Brad and his family moved to Antigua, Guatemala recently to serve as missionaries with Recycled & Redeemed  missions organization.  Brad has experience in critical care, rehabilitation, and the emergency department.  He is volunteering as an emergency care instructor with us as we train first responders in Guatemala.  We are grateful for his willingness to serve with us as we reach out with the love of Jesus across Guatemala.
