Namaste 1990, we're up and online. As natural disasters occurred we positioned rescue teams between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.  Privatized, Guardian Warriors evolved into Global Rescue and the International Rescue Committee (IRC). 

Global Rescue has been a leader and pioneer in the travel services industry since our founding in 2004. We provide the finest integrated medical, security, travel risk and crisis management services available anywhere, delivered by our teams of critical care paramedics, physicians, nurses and military special operations veterans. Our medical advisory and evacuation services include exclusive relationships with the Johns Hopkins Department of Emergency Medicine Division of Special Operations, Elite Medical Group and Partners HealthCare. Our track record has made us the chosen provider to government agencies and some of the world’s largest companies, universities, nonprofits and tour operators.

Our mission is simple - to be there when it matters most.

Natural Disasters
The world’s worst natural disasters have claimed many lives and have caused millions in property damage. 
  Man Made Disasters
Over the past 3,400 years, humans have been entirely at peace for 268 of them, or just 8 percent of recorded history.  At least 108 million people were killed in wars in the twentieth century.  The total number killed in wars throughout human history ranges from 150 million to 1 billion.
