Global Rescue is included in the Sept. 2013 Men’s Journal column “Ask Dr. Bob.” A reader asks, “What are the absolute essentials for survival gear when traveling in rural parts of the world?”
Dr. Bob Arnot responds that a basic first-aid kid may not be the most useful thing. Instead, he recommends travelers make their own kits. His list of items begins with a satellite phone. The second item:
“Global Rescue. This emergency rescue program works in conjunction with Johns Hopkins to help get you to a trusted physician fast.”
Rounding out Dr. Bob’s list of suggested items are oral rehydration salts, medicine, sun protection, a thermal blanket, tourniquet and an LED flashlight.
Thanks for the mention, Dr. Bob!
