Good People Doing Good Things. Open Linkedin Group #1 Jesus Peralta, Peru

Introduction by Doug Copp:This is the beautiful and touching story of a little boy, having a dream; to become a rescuer, saving lives and helping people and then ‘growing up’ to make his dream come true. He is now a member of ARTI and SOS Rescue Team. He is writing this article under the Good People Doing Good Things. Open Linkedin Group. He is writing about his team and their need, for equipment, to save lives. I completely recommend him, to anyone. He is a good person doing good things.

It is a wonderful thing that the ‘triangle of life’ taught to him, as a little boy, in our classes, saved his life; during, the 2003 earthquake, in Southern Peru. Jesus is promoting the ‘triangle of life’, in South America.

Ilo is a company town, in Southern Peru. The area is barren of vegetation, in a vast, dry desert. Copper mining is the major employer. The company, Southern Peru owned the town. Luis Monserrate arranged for Doug Copp, me, to come to town and train the town Organizations (Fire Dept, Police Dept, Military, Hospital, Red Cross, Miners, and Company Personnel) to rescue and survive the many serious threats, facing the people. I trained them to do mine rescue, building collapse, landslides, rock slides, train derailment, vehicular extrication, tsunami, explosions and toxic cloud possibilities.).

I trained all the Official Groups and then we created a rescue team, for Ilo.

The classes lasted for 8 hours, per day, for 2 weeks.

The people of Ilo were kind, generous, happy, decent and good. Luis Monserrate who arranged everything is a wonderful man. He was a former USA Air Force Pilot, an FBI Agent, Safety Officer and a Minister to Prisoners. He is now semi-retired and drives a school bus. The world has been a better place because he was in it.

I can’t say enough about how wonderful the people of Ilo are and I am so proud of Jesus Peralta, for making his dream come true…to save lives and help people.

Jesus sent me this picture of a little rescue pin that I gave him when he was a little boy.

Here is his story (in English and Spanish):

My name is Jesus Peralta Navarro, I am Peruvian, born in the city of Ilo, in the Moquegua province, in the South of Peru. At the young age of 6 years old, when people asked me “what do you want to be when you grow up?” I would respond, “I want to be a firefighter and help others”.

In 1998, my father Francisco Peralta Meza had the opportunity of participating in a rescue course, a workshop given by an expert in the field, Doug Copp. I also had the opportunity to participate in the workshop and learned about the topic and how to help our fellow man in an emergency, and learned about the ‘Triangle of Life’, knowledge that I was able to apply at the 2003 earthquake in the south of Peru and saved my life.

Doug Copp formed a great team of rescuers in the city of Ilo. For different reasons, some of them do not live in Ilo anymore, but they keep in touch and I know that in case of an emergency, they are always ready to help our fellow man. Since then, I have learned more and more about search and rescue.

I moved to the United States and continued to learn about the rescue field and helped in many disasters such as, hurricanes in South Dakota, and other disasters that marked me for the rest of my life, like Hurricane Katrina, earthquakes in Peru, and many other different disasters.

When I returned to my country, I was able to start an NGO that deals with humanitarian assistance and, search and rescue, similar to the NGO “SOS EMERGENCIAS PERU”. My organization is slowly growing, but as all of you may know, it is not an easy task to grow as an NGO; since we do not have the support to have additional training, and implement it, but the desire to help is greater, which is the force that makes us go forward and help people in disasters.

Well, my team is dedicated to work with the most vulnerable areas, by providing training in first aid, search and rescue, among others. This allows them to have a little knowledge about prevention.

SOS EMERGENCIAS PERU” is trying to improve prevention and gather logistic materials, so that they can help more people, in disasters.

**note from Doug Copp: If you are a firefighter, rescuer or medical practitioner with ‘worn out’ gear and/or supplies, of any kind, Please let us know and we will get it to Peru, somehow. Doug Copp amerrescue@aol.com or 1-902-567-1227 (home)

Mi nombre es Jesus Peralta Navarro , soy peruano , nacido en la ciudad  de Ilo en el  departamento de Moquegua , al sur de Peru . A mi corta edad de 6 años cuando me preguntaban que queria ser de grande siempre respondia  quiero ser bombero y ayudar al projimo , en el año de 1998  mi padre Francisco Peralta Meza  tuvo la oportunidad  de participar en el curso  y taller de rescate  dictado por un especialista en el tema como es Doug Copp , de cual yo tambien pude participar y aprender mas sobre  este  tema y ayudar al projimo en  una emergencia, y aprender sobre el triangulo de vida , lo cual lo pude poner en ejercicio en el terremoto en el 2003 en el sur de Peru, y gracias a los conocimientos impartidos por Doug sigo vivo, el  formo un gran equipo de rescatistas en la ciuadad de Ilo que bueno hoy en dia por diferentes motivos muchos de ello ya no viven en Ilo , pero siempre  se mantien en  contacto, y se que cada uno de ellos en  una emergencia  estan prestos a apoyar al projimo  y desde hay segui aprendiendo mas sobre el tema de rescate y salvamento ,  me mude a  vivir a Estados Unidos y segui especialisandome en el tema y apoye en muchos evento como  los Huracanes en South Dakora , y otros eventos  que tambien marcaron mi vida, como el Huracan Katrina, sismos en Peru, y diferentes fenomenos naturales en  otras partes.

Al volver a mi pais me pude incorporar a una  ONG que se dedica al tema de ayuda humanitaria y busqueda y salvamento  como es la ONG SOS EMERGENCIAS PERU, la cual poco a poco esta creciendo pero como cada uno de ustedes sabe no es facil salir adelante con  una ONG, ya que hasta el momento no contamos con apoyo para poder seguir mas capacitaciones y la implementacion de la misma, pero el deseo de ayudar es mas grande y eso es el motor que nos  impulsa a seguir adelante  a cada uno de los miembros y ayudar a las personas en un desastre , bueno mi institucion se dedica a trabajar  con las poblaciones mas  vulnerables, capacitandoles en temas como primeros auxilios , busqueda y salvamento entre otros cursos que les permite tener un poco mas el tema de la prevencion.

SOS EMERGENCIAS PERU esta tratando de realizar un mejoramiento en el tema de prevencio y  la implementacion de materiales logisticos , para asi poder ayudar a mas personas en un desastre.

Prior to 911, I was the most experienced rescue person, in the world. Permanently disabled from 911, I have changed my life-focus towards preventing bureaucracy and vested financial interests from causing the deaths of 200,000 children per year. I am promoting the belief that the lives of children are more important than American Insurance Company Shareholder profits. International Disaster Reduction Institute Institute of International Disaster January 2010 – Present (3 years 10 months)worldwide The world's most experienced Rescuer/Disaster Mitigation Management Expert , crawling inside of 896 collapsed buildings at 100+ disaster events during war, peace and revolution Plus a lifetime of High Adventure; including, an undercover cop. .At almost 3,000 serious life threatening events and the medical survival from enough toxins to kill 200+ people, I am probably the world's leading survivor, from death. Survival Scientist Linkedin Profile: Summary saving lives, reducing suffering. "You must not only be good. You must be wise and wise enough to know who is good." doug copp Sometimes it is NOT enough to do good things ..you must be strong enough to endure the attack...that will follow; especially if you are trying to place children's lives ahead of USA Insurance Company Profits...crawling inside of 896 collapsed buildings helped to give me the courage that it takes; especially, considering that I have been sick every single day; since 911. FYI: USA Insurance companies oppose my 'triangle of life' survival method; because, 90% of the children would survive; instead of 98% dead. This translates into//actuarial tables indicate, survivor's seeking compensation for trauma (physical or mental) with a net result of diminished shareholder return. The insurance Company Executives told us: ” We are in the business of maximizing shareholder return..NOT..saving lives.” The USA School Boards have been told by their Insurance Carriers that their policies would be terminated or the premium would become extreme..if the children are allowed to survive, following my method. I tried to learn: I am responsible for 'what I do' and for 'what I do NOT do'. I am responsible for 'MY actions'. I am not responsible for what other people do. I discovered: that people never regret 'doing the right thing'. They only regret 'doing the wrong thing'. A life devoid of 'something worth dying for', is a life, 'not worth living'. Do all the living you can; while you can. 650,000 people died, at the major disasters I worked at..I have seen things that you cannot imagine. For all the persecution, hatred, violence and disgusting behavior that I have endured; in fighting against, evil, greedy bastards who exploited the helpless and preyed upon people..I am glad that I always did 'the right thing'. I always stood up; many times, by myself; but never alone.. If you can't be YOURSELF then who can you be?
