Emergency Evacuation

Removing people, such as education abroad participants and staff, from a source of imminent danger. Sources of danger might include natural catastrophes (for example, earthquakes), man-made environmental catastrophes (for example, nuclear plant meltdowns), epidemics, civil unrest, war, and terrorism. Companies that provide emergency evacuation services may do so on an insurance policy basis or as a fee-for-service. In extreme cases, governments may provide evacuation services for their own citizens.
