AIG Travel Guard Establishes 24/7 Medical Emergency Center in Beijing

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.
