Crisis and Disaster Response
Rescue Global is a UK Charity and USA 501(c)(3) Not for Profit, Crisis and Disaster Response Agency, deploying to natural and man made disasters worldwide, staffed almost exclusively by former emergency services, public sector and military veterans.
As a Crisis and Disaster Response Agency, Rescue Global focuses on the first few days of a crisis or disaster, aiming to put expert crisis and disaster response personnel on the ground in the shortest possible time. Our operational teams are supported by an expert HQ staff who are able to liaise with any organisation worldwide, providing detailed real time information, crucial to the success of live saving and other response operations.
Rescue Global combines the best of modern technology such as self sustaining communications systems, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV's), critical event mapping, incident command and assessment tools, with the proven methods of some of the worlds best emergency services, search, rescue and humanitarian agencies.
Our Mission is: TO SAVE LIFE
Rescue Global does this through the effective provision of:
- Reconnaissance to develop a clear picture of the event with which to empower local, regional and international responders. We shine light on a crisis or disaster and find out the essential answers to: Who? What? Where? When? How? and sometimes Why? In the event of a crisis or disaster, there is often a lack of critical information which responders need in order to plan and start their mission. It is the core function of Rescue Global to find out what has happened and report it back quickly to those who need to know, in a format which they can understand and trust.
- Command, Control, Communications and Information. As one of the first agencies on the ground, Rescue Global provides liaison, briefings and where requested, leadership structures to enable local, regional and international actions. Our London Headquarters acts a a central "hub" through which all information flows. This includes live video streams from the head-cams of our Pathfinder Teams, images from our unmanned aerial vehicles and the ongoing voice communications of our team members on the ground, all recorded and available to those who need this level of insight. We also generate maps, valid risk and damage assessments to international standards.
Pro active actions
When not tasked with responding to an immediate crisis or disaster, Rescue Global personnel can be found conducting training, research, taking part in ground breaking experiments, designing and developing new equipment and strengthening relationships between other international charities, NGO's, the media, academia, industry and governments.
We do this all with our one mission in mind, the cross cutting theme which links all of our activities together, TO SAVE LIFE.

The training they put the team-members through, is incredibly demanding and thorough, making them the ultimate team you want coming to help you when you need it most. I am proud to be an Ambassador and team-member for Rescue Global. To be part of the best.
As a former Infantry Officer with senior command experience in very hostile circumstances, I can say that I trust Rescue Global to do their best, using best practices, skills and methods, in the worst circumstances.
I know the leadership of this UK charity very well, and I believe what they do is important, and so urgently needed. I have been impressed in particular with the way that they do quite dangerous and difficult things, in a very controlled and risk averse way. Not an easy mandate.
Natural and humanitarian disasters continue to challenge even the best organized and resourced Nations. As an Ambassador for Rescue Global, I proudly represent a strategic partnership dedicated to excellence in global crisis response, security and disaster management.
