Increased tourism and population growth have led to a jump of at least 20% in the number of services provided by the Puerto Peñasco Red Cross, surpassing the 6200 different forms of care provided to the community in 2016.  EMT Coordinator Miguel Ángel Ibarra Lomelí detailed the local Red Cross has already provided over 7000 forms of service since January of this year, half of which were emergencies tended to at the facility itself while others were for ambulance transport.  Ibarra Lomelí noted the local Red Cross has 65 EMTS, which means better response to emergencies, adding the increase in services is also due to their commitment of responding to 100% of emergency calls as they now have the staff, vehicles, and gasoline to make this possible.
