Study Abroad Crisis Management Plan – Scotland 2017

Having a crisis management plan while abroad is essential to safeguarding all participants enrolled in study abroad programs.  In all likelihood you will have a crisis free experience but in case an emergency situation should arise, we would like for all participants to have a plan to address such issues. 

In order to help anyone who may have to provide assistance to you in the event of an emergency, please keep with you at all times the following items:

  • Copy of your passport
  • Copy of your insurance card
  • A list of any medications you are currently taking and allergies with a short description of your reaction
  • You will also need a list of contacts to whom you should report an emergency (You will have this information available on a small card to carry with you at all times):

Emergency Contacts:
