A delegation of business employees required rescue after violent riots erupt in the region
Reports were received at the MAGNUS Control Center from several foreign companies requesting immediate evacuation from the area as GSM communication infrastructure became inoperable during violent riots in the region. Reliable communication with employees in the area was determined to be critical to ensuring that a safe evacuation take place.
- Once initial reports were received, the MAGNUS Control Center gathered critical intelligence from its global network of service providers, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the local consulate. Based on this intelligence, the team built several scenarios for extraction of the foreign employees. Simultaneously, an on-ground rescue team was notified to prepare to be flown into the country.
- Communication is established with one group, leveraging satellite communication devices made available by close coordination with local Red Cross teams.
- This group of employees is directed to remain in place, as they are determined to be in a safe location and equipped with food, water, and the presence of a doctor.
- The Magnus Control Center continued to monitor and gather intelligence, leading to the coordination with a UN Delegation that was able to successfully evacuate both teams of employees to the capital Addis Ababa.
