For general information regarding SAI health and safety services see Health & Safety. Following are some important health and safety resources:
- SAI Safety, Crisis and Emergency Management Procedures (pdf)
- Department of State, Travel Warnings and Consular Information Sheets: safety and security information by country.
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Travel Health Notices: lists travel health notices by warning level.
- Department of State, U.S. Embassies: listing of all U.S. Embassies in the world.
We encourage students and their families to discuss and establish a contact system that can be used in the event of a crisis on either side. In most instances of crisis, parents or guardians should attempt to contact students first before they attempt to contact individuals at SAI in order to gain reassurance of their safety.
