0

WASHINGTON: US ski and snowboard teams have a private crisis response team ready to assist with evacuation from the Sochi Winter Olympics in case of emergencies, USA Today reported. The report said Global Rescue, a Boston-based firm that has worked with the US ski and snowboard teams since the 2006 Turin Winter Games, has up to five aircraft standing by to help evacuate Americans in case of a security or medical emergency. Russian authorities provide security during the Olympics but the US government also provides security for the American delegation.
