We would like to share a selection of recent Global Rescue media coverage highlighting the work we are doing to support the U.S. Ski and Snowboard teams at the Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.

For the last eight years, the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) has relied on Global Rescue to provide life-saving medical advisory, evacuation, security and other critical emergency services to skiers, their families and elite athletes.  We will continue to provide these essential services during the Olympics.

If you have plans to travel to the Sochi Games or other locations where our services might be needed, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,

Global Rescue Team
