Global Rescue is honored to announce that it has been selected by the Wilderness Medical Society as its official medical and security evacuation provider. 

Founded in 1983, the Wilderness Medical Society (WMS) is the world’s leading organization devoted to wilderness medical issues and challenges, exploring health risks and safety issues in extreme situations such as mountains, jungles, deserts, caves, marine environments, and space.

WMS CEO Loren Greenway, Ph.D., noted, “Over the years, the Wilderness Medical Society and its membership have had experience with Global Rescue and the breadth and depth of their capabilities.  I’m happy that this agreement has come to pass.”

“The Wilderness Medical Society is the worldwide authority on wilderness medicine,” said Global Rescue CEO Dan Richards.  “We believe our partnership is an outstanding fit.”

Global Rescue will participate in the Wilderness Medicine Conference and Annual Meeting in Wyoming this summer, August 1-6.
