Following the Boxing day tsunami back in 2004, the Foreign Office improved the organisation of assistance provided to British nationals stranded abroad.  The assistance provided has taken a positive step forward with the introduction of the high tech crisis centre at the FCO.  It features an interactive map and live streaming of updates from global agencies.  As the ITIJ article highlights, it is unclear how the crisis centre will impact on the reliance placed on travel insurers and assistance companies.  Hopefully the centre will be an additional means of support for those operating on the ground, thereby having a positive impact for affected Brits.
