Steps to take for safety and security following a crisis while traveling.
Notify the U.S. Embassy of your whereabouts, status, and onward travel plans. Search for your nearest U.S. Embassy and their contact details on the official government website and register your future travels via the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program, or STEP.
Use Facebook’s Safety Check feature to quickly inform your friends and family, via the social network, of your safety. Geolocation will pinpoint your proximity to a site of crisis, and your next visit to Facebook will prompt you to “mark yourself safe.”
Consider adding an international voice and data plan for your smartphone if you aren’t already traveling with one. You may have one and not yet know it; T-Mobile customers have free international texting and data, with $0.20-per-minute calling, as part of every “Simple Choice” plan. If your phone is unlocked, buying a local SIM card and prepaid plan also works. The ability to call emergency services, travel providers, and your friends and family should not be underestimated. In addition, having data means access to Google Maps, social media, travel rebooking emails, and any breaking news updates on the situation.
If you are a Scout locate the local Scouting association, offices, and shops. Be a resource to help the community your are visiting.
They are lessons for life! Excellent article to show value-based lifelong skils. I teach Management courses in college and graduate schools. Many concepts and topics are also taught in National Youth Leadership Training and other Scouting training. I shared everywhere. Our world need more scouts like you. @ScoutmasterJose http://www.scoutingadventures.org
