A crisis abroad can take many forms: transportation accidents, injuries or illnesses, and crime or terrorism events. Institutions can prepare for crises abroad by creating and practicing written emergency plans. A sound international crisis response plan includes preparation, prevention, and response directives for a range of situations.

Sample elements of an international crisis response plan include:

  • Pre-departure and onsite travel orientations
  • Detailed communication strategies
  • Evacuation and back-up plans
  • Documentation of international crises and the institution’s response
