The Background

EMAS have surveyed the persistent problems encountered during the past two years, and have prepared a business system to eliminate or to at least mitigate those problems.

Many forward thinking Assistance Companies has in the past, had to rely on other established medical escorting providers? Many of whom have become entrenched in some considerable archaic protocols, and have charged in accordance, to achieve nothing more than a quick profit, in many cases without any prior consideration to the overall costs being paid for, by the individual or insurers concerned.

EMAS fully realise that they are entering into an already established market, but EMAS is equipped for radical change, in order to solve the many prevalent and persistent physical problems that today's Assistance Companies are encountering on a day by day basis. Our intent is to provide and establish EMAS as 'The Central Controlled, Multi resourced, future leader in Aero-Medical Repatriation"
