Air Ambulance International Works With US Embassies All Over the Globe

Houston-based medical transport company can work with a US Embassy to help bring a person home if they have an accident or become ill traveling in another country.

Air Ambulance International is pleased to remind anyone in need of care traveling in another country that they have strong relationships with United States Embassies and Consulates all over the globe.

One of the most important pieces of information anyone can have while traveling overseas is the phone number and/or address for the nearest US Embassy or Consulate. This knowledge is important for safety, especially if someone has to visit a country with a travel warning or alert in place. But being able to reach out to an embassy or consulate is also key if someone becomes sick or have an accident. If this worst-case scenario happens, a US Embassy or Consulate can work with an air medical service company to help bring the person home for proper care.

"If someone needs to return home after a medical emergency, the first thing they should do is contact the US Embassy or Consulate in the country they are visiting," an Air Ambulance International spokesman said. "The government officials can help them find a medical repatriation company, alert relatives, and do a lot of good procedures to take away the stress."

Once the an air ambulance company is found they will start to work with the government officials to help bring that person home. It's especially helpful to have these people working the air ambulance booking process. The patient will be able to fly home much faster with help than trying to fill out all the paperwork themselves. "If they are sick or have an accident, the last thing they want to worry about is all the administrative stuff," the spokesman said. "It's probably the single biggest relief of all the patients that our company has helped in the last 3 decades."

Most air ambulance professionals, like Air Ambulance International, have already have a built in relationship with several U.S. Embassies and Consulates overseas. "That means when clients trust with their air ambulance needs, we have the experience and understanding for their situation," the spokesman said.

Family is also an important part of the process. Before leaving for a trip, always alert family about one's travel plans. If accident or illness is serious enough the family may have to do a lot of the heavy lifting to help one home. If the family needs to communicate with the US Embassy or Consulate they will need to have as many details as possible. One way to help your family is to scan some of one's important documents and send copies to relatives and set up a secure email or cloud folder.

Being prepared for anything is what being a smart traveler is all about. Typically no one thinks they will need an air ambulance until they do. But if one is travelling, they will have all the help they need in an emergency. The US Embassy or Consulate information is at a moment's notice.
