Recent Security Threats in Israel…and How On Call Can Help

The security situation in southern Israel and Gaza continues to be unstable following the airstrike on November 14, 2012 that killed Ahmed al-Jabari, the commander of Hamas’ military wing.

While it’s strongly recommended that you avoid any travel to the Gaza Strip, if you’re currently traveling in this region, On Call International members can rest assured they have access to the following emergency services:

Identifying Commercial Flights Home: As things continue to escalate in the Middle East, it’s important to consider the possibility that commercial flights could become extremely limited, or in some extreme cases – completely unavailable. For help with identifying and booking commercial flights home, pick up your phone and give us a call. If you prefer to make your own travel arrangements, don’t forget that social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter can quickly connect you with your airline’s customer support staff.

Finding Appropriate Healthcare: If you’re traveling more than 50 miles away from home and experience a medical emergency, On Call International can provide you with emergency medical transportation, including medical evacuation, to any hospital of your choice. Our members also have unlimited access to our 24-hour nurse helpline and worldwide medical, dental and pharmacy referrals.

Lost or Stolen Passport Assistance: For the most part, the only way to get in and out of a country is with a passport. If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation that your passport has been lost or stolen, give us a call and we’ll give you a hand.

Staying Informed: If the destination you are in is under extreme watch, it’s even more important to keep yourself up-to-date. Be sure to trust vetted information sources only – this includes keeping track of what is being reported in the media as well as through social networking channels. On Call International can also assist our members in accessing timely and credible information regarding this volatile situation.
