Alpine Ontario partners with Global Rescue to protect its athletes
Alpine Ontario has partnered with Global Rescue in order to offer its athletes the same medical evacuation and advisory services provided to the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Teams, the organization announced today.
“Global Rescue is a category leader just like Alpine Ontario,” says James Lazor, Executive Director for Alpine Ontario. “Partnering with Global Rescue supports our athletes all over the planet when they are training or racing and gives us the peace of mind needed in helping develop the best young athletes in winter sport. Global Rescue helps mitigate risk for us and protects our most precious resource: the kids. Our elite athletes are training and competing with increased frequency in hard to reach mountain towns where obtaining the best care can be difficult. Working with Global Rescue will allow us to get them the resources they need, should they need them, no matter where they are in the world.”
Alpine Ontario athletes frequently travel to South America, New Zealand and Europe as well as North American destinations for training and competitions, and have selected Global Rescue to ensure that injured or ill skiers receive the highest standard of healthcare no matter where they are in the world.
