About the Family and Friends Liaison Office
BAS supports the contacts of those living and working in the Antarctic through our Human Resources team. We are here to try and alleviate any worries that you may have and are happy to be contacted with any query no matter how big or small. We would much rather that you contacted us to talk about any anxieties you might be experiencing rather than worry in silence. In most cases a simple phone call to us can solve any problem.
We are also here to be contacted if a more serious problem occurs. We always recommend that any bad news from home should be relayed through the Human Resources team and the Base Commander. In our experience it is much better for those working in the Antarctic to hear bad news in a meeting with the Base Commander rather than receiving an email or a fax “cold”.
Please read carefully the Emergency Contact section.
