AIG Travel Guard Assist has collaborated with
Australian-based Global Doctor to provide American travelers
with on-the-ground, 24/7 travel and medical emergency travel command
center services in Beijing
and the other Olympic cities. Medical teams made up of experienced,
western-trained doctors and nurses with English, Chinese and other language
abilities will be strategically located and on standby, with the capability of
handling multiple emergency medical evacuations at the same time. AIG Travel
Guard Assist is sending a medical team to Beijing that will facilitate a mass casualty response exercise. The purpose is to assess
and make any necessary adjustments to ensure the appropriate capacity and
capabilities are available to respond appropriately to any emergency situation.
The travel command center in Beijing will be
supported by AIG Travel Guard Assist's comprehensive 24/7 assistance services,
such as emergency medical and evacuation coordination, travel assistance,
personal assistance and concierge services.
