Worldwide GG EMS Partnerships
Guardian Group EMS in 2014 will be working to partner with established like-minded humanitarian and volunteer groups dedicated to helping others in need. Additionally, GG EMS is able to provide air and ground transportation and security services for the doctors, nurses and personnel providing humanitarian aid in rural and remote areas around the world.
Just a few of the organizations and groups that GG EMS hopes to work with in the future are outlined below.
I. Telemedicine Services
Guardian Group EMS Joint Special Operations Communications System( JSOCS) delivers solutions that mitigate the loss of life by filling the gaps when communication systems are down and inoperable. The J.S.O.C.S. program is a stepping stone and total solution for the Telemedicine, Incident Command System (ICS) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) needs in the nation during emergency and disaster situations.
A. The Emergency Management Systems (EMS) and Incident Command Systems(ICS) communication capabilities during a disaster, Internet failure or electric grid shutdown will be up and running with J.S.O.C.S.
B. Sheriffs, hospitals, remote rescue sites and cities that are cutoff from communication will be able to report their critical medical and overall needs securely.
C. Guardian Group's Special Emergency Response Team (SERT) Training Facility (STF) will
provide specific training and scenario and exercise-based education to develop a new
Emergency Rescue Response asset for emergency response groups utilizing J.S.O.C.S.
in the state of Oregon and Northern California.
D. The medical communications and tracking systems currently in place for the aging community is in need of repair. The J.S.O.C.S. program brings solutions to this critical lifeline for endangered senior populations and populations in remote areas.
E. The J.S.O.C.S. is deployed with a completely secure encryption system that is approved by Military, the Federal Aviation Agency, and power supply agencies.

III. Organizations Dedicated to US Veterans
- Horses for Heroes: This Santa Fe, New Mexico, a privately funded, non-profit organization's Cowboy Up! program is a unique horsemanship, wellness and skill set restructuring program designed for Veterans and active military who have sustained physical injuries or combat trauma (PTSD) during their time serving the country. Veterans work hands-on with horses, beginning with groundwork and progressing to riding and participating in other aspects of ranch life including working cattle and experiencing the camaraderie with the ranch's cowboys who are Veterans themselves. http://horsesforheroes.org
- Wounded Warrior Program: this non-profit organization's mission is "to honor and empower wounded warriors" who have returned home from serving their country. The group aims to educate the public regarding the needs of injured service members; to help injured service members aid and assist each other; and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members. http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org
- Operation Freedom Paws: Empowers veterans to restore their independence, trains clients to train their own service dogs, build human-canine service teams and provides the support needed for clients to succeed. In turn, the service dogs help returned veterans to stay calm and focused by creating a protective space around them. The dogs are able to alert their client of events or danger, retrieve objects and so much more. http://operationfreedompaws.org
- Pet Therapy: Bert is one of GG EMS's therapy dogs. Bert's gentle nature is a comforting balm to those who need it. He has a true Guardian Spirit... and he won't say no to an appreciative pat on the head or a good belly rub.
