Remote Wilderness Emergency Programme Contract
Our Remote Wilderness Emergency Programme Contract provides clients with Medical Risk Assessments, Emergency Response Plan Development, Capacity Building, On-Site Medication and Incident Management Services for their remote sites.
Africa SAFE-T currently provides this product to clients in the Safari and Tourism industry as well as other industries located outside our current areas of medical support and response. Africa SAFE-T is continually expanding its medical support and response operations throughout Africa. We are able to set up a base at the request of a client. However the service is often too expensive for a single small to medium organisation and therefore requires “buy in” from other organisations in the area to allow for shared use of the medical support and response service making the contract more affordable for clients.
