Hello everyone. I'm Kevin Sampson with PerforMax3 and I have a question for you. Are your safe travel plans going to be just another roll of the dice? Today we're kicking off a small series of videos and articles about safe travels. The information we are sharing can be for anyone traveling, from, students on study abroad programs, to business or corporate travelers, and even retirees traveling the world.
But why am I the one giving you this information? Well, before I worked for PerforMax3, I was in the Navy for about nine years as an aviation rescue swimmer. During that time I had the opportunity to visit over 20 countries worldwide, from the Black Sea into Europe and a few parts of Africa. Some of the places I've visited, like Afghanistan, were very dangerous and I knew this before traveling there. But, there were places in Europe, like Germany and Italy, that were not perceived as dangerous.
In today’s world, it is vital that you realize every place has its own set of risks and circumstances that can turn any situation into the worst day of your life. Think of Great Britain. Three deadly attacks within the past few weeks have left scores of people dead. Until very recently, travel to Great Britain wouldn’t have concerned me. But, with the stabbings, the suicide bombings, and vehicles used as weapons to such a deadly affect upon travelers from around the world, it is more important than ever to take your travel plans seriously.
So, how can we help? It's our goal to arm you with information and techniques that will better prepare you for your travels. We’ll share tips, stories, and web based learning programs designed to equip you for any situation and help get you home safely to the ones you love.
So, if you, your family, or anyone else you know is traveling, send them over to our website. I’m Kevin Sampson with PerforMax3. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you next time.
