GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Emergency and Other Relief Services Industry. The global market for Emergency and Other Relief Services is expected to witness significant growth, driven by the increasing incidences of natural calamities, wars, terrorist attacks, and other types of emergencies. Natural disasters, such as the Haiti earthquake and Russian summer heat wave of 2010 and the deadly Japanese earthquake in early 2011, have increased focus on the need for timely and efficient emergency relief services.

Emergency and Other Relief Services: A Global Outlook

Follow us on LinkedIn – As the occurrences of natural or man-made disasters increase, governments across the world have been forced to work towards improving emergency response systems and services. The need for
emergency and other relief services is further expected to increase in future, as factors such as unplanned urbanization, environmental degradation, and constant changes in the global climate are expected to fuel these disasters in the years to come. Growing complications, brought on by rapid changes to the population and environment, have necessitated the development of strategies that are in line with the changing global circumstances. The role played by emergency relief-providing agencies assumes higher significance, owing to the fact that developing countries are largely affected by such high-intensity disasters. The unpredictability of such high-magnitude calamities makes it impossible for average households to cope with the disasters, thereby necessitating the provision of emergency relief services.

Ambulance Services represents one of the most important services during natural and man-made disasters. In-fact, the emergency medical services offered by ambulances are most essential during any kind of disaster. The recent terrorist attacks on countries, including the US and UK, and the increasing proportion of losses being caused by natural calamities every year, have acted as growth catalysts for the emergency and relief services industry, which includes ambulance services. Ambulance providers are currently focused on offering improved standards of emergency medical care to patients with advanced communication and medical equipment capable of superior diagnostics.

Information dissemination and operational coordination hold enormous significance during emergency situations resulting from man-made disasters or natural calamities, such as tsunami, floods or earthquakes. Inability to communicate and share information with governments, aid organizations and emergency services leads to information shortage, which can result in inefficient provision of aid to the affected population. The unpredictable nature and increasing frequency of disasters enhance the significance of communication networks and equipment during disaster relief scenarios. Satellite-based telecom networks remain the most effective means of providing Internet and voice connectivity services to emergency workers. Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) primarily operates as a communications’ center for collecting and mapping intelligence and information about the effect of the calamity and for guiding recovery services. Mobile capabilities and smaller size allows the equipment to be installed easily and quickly for emergency and rescue operations.
