Global Rescue is pleased to announce a new partnership with the International Game Fish Association, a non-profit organization committed to the conservation of game fish and the promotion of responsible and ethical angling practices. As the ‘Official Emergency Medical and Evacuation Provider’ of IGFA, Global Rescue will offer the organization’s members and their families a choice of memberships, which include advisory, field rescue and evacuation services, in both medical and security emergencies.

“We are proud to have chosen Global Rescue as the ‘Official Emergency Medical and Evacuation Provider’ of the IGFA and its members,” said Mike Myatt, IGFA Chief Operating Officer.

“We identified Global Rescue as the most capable company to provide our clients with the protection they need in the event of a medical or security emergency. Fortunately, serious incidents are rare, but getting injured or becoming ill in many of the locations to which IGFA members travel can be both a serious and costly matter. Global Rescue’s unique ability to conduct a field rescue and to evacuate a member to their home hospital, make them an obvious choice. I highly recommend that IGFA Members consider their services, which are remarkably affordable.”  

Global Rescue has a long track-record of providing emergency services to anglers and recently evacuated Jim Klug, AFFTA Chairman and owner of Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures, from Tsimane Lodge, Bolivia.  Click here to read the whole story. Memberships start at $119.
