||1990, we're up and online.
As natural disasters occurred we positioned rescue teams between
the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.
Warriors evolved into
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.

||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.
