CISabroad response to the incident in Manchester, England

May 24, 2017 8:57:38 PM

We were all very saddened by the terrible incident that took place on the evening of May 22, in Manchester, England.

Events of this kind are rare; the UK has not seen a terrorist incident of this magnitude since 2005. Following the raised threat level, security services are on high alert across the UK and have put in place additional special measures to protect the country against future attacks.

After communicating with all on-site partners in London, CISabroad continues to operate its programming as normal. We have a robust Emergency Response and Risk Management plan in place; trained, experienced and dedicated CISabroad onsite staff in London; and all participants receive an in-depth on-site orientation upon arrival. This orientation provides a detailed emergency plan, including important emergency phone numbers, meeting points, and other resources that will aid participants in keeping themselves safe.

We stand in solidarity with our British partners against terrorism and acts of senseless violence. We believe that incidents like these highlight the continued importance of traveling abroad and working toward a more informed and accepting world.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the CISabroad team at 413-582-0407 or email Remember that our commitment to health and safety is paramount.

Kind Regards,
The CISabroad Risk Management Team
