ExecuJet Africa launches emergency response plan service
ExecuJet Africa is partnering with international risk management company MS Risk to offer emergency response plans for clients with staff based at remote locations in Africa. The company will be launching this new service, called Urgent Response Plan (URP), at Mining Indaba 2013.
“We’ve had an increase in requests from companies to urgently extract key foreign staff based in remote locations within Africa, which led us to launch this service with MS Risk. An evacuation exercise requires thorough planning well in advance to integrate the air service with other logistics involved, and this is beyond the scope of most other air service providers,” says Chris Frost, business development manager for flight operations at ExecuJet.
“Often companies have a plan in place to handle a crisis, but in our experience most are out of date before they are implemented. Together with ExecuJet, we will work with companies to ensure their policies are up-to-date and robust enough to deal with any emergency situation,” explains Simon Barry, senior consultant at MS Risk.
