In the event of an incident like the recent Mumbai or Kabul hotel attacks, this is how a US security team would have managed the situation where injuries may have occured:

  •  Interfaced and already have established a dialogue with local law enforcement (if not corrupt) and in-country U.S law enforcement.
  • Run counter-surveillance prior and during the time of arrival at the hotel.
  • ‘Advanced’ the entire hotel and surrounding areas including medical trauma centers and hospitals.
  •  Established a primary and secondary evacuation plan from the hotel.
  •  Staged vehicles at accessible locations.
  •  Arranged a priority response from a private ambulance / med-evac company.
  •  Secured an armored vehicle as necessary in high risk zones.
  •  Organized access to additional vetted security and/or an armed rapid response team.
  •  Applied immediate first aid via EMT trained Agents and standard Trauma, AED, Oxygen and First Aid kits.
  •  Have determined the fastest route to a pre-vetted trauma center with a contingency center as a backup.
  •  Relate any injuries or conditions of the client to the Medical Partner en route to the trauma center.
  •  Provide a continuous update of the client’s condition and minutes out from the trauma center.
  •  Apply initial first aid
  •  Transfer the confidential medical profile to the pre-vetted doctor.
  •  Liaise with the pre-vetted doctor prior to the arrival of the client and during the medical intervention.
  • Expedited medical transfer and safe passage out of the country.
