Global Rescue is assisting corporate clients whose employees and operations have been affected by Friday’s tsunami and earthquake in Japan.

The company’s crisis response professionals are advising clients regarding how shelter-in-place, coordinating flights out of the country and monitoring the safety of those in impacted areas. The operations team is also helping clients make sure all impacted employees are accounted for, a task made more challenging in northeastern Japan where the earthquake and tsunami has damaged much of the communications infrastructure.

While there have been no reported injuries or security threats to Global Rescue members thus far, several thousand remain missing in areas where the devastation is most severe. Global Rescue has placed local assets on standby should a large scale evacuation become necessary.
