Against the backdrop of a harrowing 2014 Nepal climbing season with multiple fatalities, Global Rescue, a worldwide provider of integrated medical, security, intelligence, travel risk management and crisis response services to corporations, governments and individuals, today announced that it will continue to offer on-the-ground support for climbers in Nepal during the upcoming Everest season, beginning in March.

Global Rescue conducts dozens of helicopter evacuations from Everest each year. In 2014, the company rescued John All after he fell into a 70-foot Himalayan crevasse, and evacuated noted alpinist Ian Welsted during an attempt on the south face of Nuptse.

“Global Rescue is the only company of our type with ‘boots-on-the-ground,’” said Dan Richards, CEO and founder of Global Rescue. “Our trained personnel have been conducting rescue and evacuation missions in Nepal every season for more than a decade. In 2015, we are prepared to respond with resources in place to ensure a successful Everest season for the climbing community amidst an increased call for safety measures.”

The company’s personnel in Nepal attend to climbers who become sick or injured, or are in need of evacuation off the mountain. Global Rescue critical care medics accompany members during helicopter evacuations, and assist through medical evaluation, treatment and discharge from Kathmandu hospitals and clinics. Global Rescue regularly sends its medical and security teams around the world to personally attend to members facing emergencies.

Global Rescue has a longstanding relationship with the climbing community. The American Alpine Club has selected Global Rescue advisory, rescue and evacuation services for AAC members since 2007.
