Delta Wave Teams with Global Rescue
Delta Wave Communications have teamed up with Global Rescue to combine their service with Delta Wave’s line of satellite based global personal tracking and emergency alert products.
Global Rescue is an emergency services company that provides best-in-class medical, aeromedical evacuation, search and rescue and security services to individuals, corporations, travelers and expeditions worldwide. Global Rescue is the only company that transports patients from the site of illness or injury to the nearest hospital or to a waiting aircraft. Other companies generally transport from hospital to hospital. The company’s emergency response teams are comprised of paramedics, physicians and security personnel, many of whom are veterans of elite special operations units of the U.S. Military. Through an exclusive relationship with the physicians of Johns Hopkins, Global Rescue members also benefit from the advisory services of some of the world’s finest physicians.
In addition to this new product line, the services are also compatible with Delta Wave’s line of personal asset trackers, such as the “Shout Nano” and Solara devices which offer two-way messaging and emergency alert features. When used in conjunction with Global Rescue services, customers are ensured that emergency alerts will be facilitated on an immediate basis, regardless of one’s location. Customers using these tracking devices in conjunction with Delta Wave’s dTractm web based mapping solution have the added benefit of pinpointing the location of the origin emergency alerts.
Mark Borner, V.P. of Sales at Delta Wave comments: “This is a perfect fit and comprises a full service emergency alert program for customers who require a total solution that offers global two-way communications with emergency alert features, along with field care and evacuation services. This combination of products offers the only truly Global solution used for this purpose.”
Recent examples of Global Rescue’s work include evacuating a U.S. Ski Team athlete from the Alps, transporting a teenaged skier with a broken leg from South America, and evacuating numerous climbers from Himalayan peaks. Other recent missions include evacuations from Lebanon, The Republic of Georgia, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Mexico, Alaska, Argentina, Ethiopia, Ghana, and Thailand.
