History

Global Rescue was founded in 2004[8] to address a lack of global emergency services for travelers and companies following 9/11. Among the global events for which Global Rescue has provided crisis response services are the 2006 Israeli conflict in Beirut, Lebanon; the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai, India; the 2010 ash cloud in Western Europe; the 2012 coup attempt in Mali; and the 2015 earthquake in Nepal.[9]
