Summary: 

The US offers contingency planning for its citizens overseas.

The concept of consular assistance has been extended beyond the core disasters and provides assistance in case of hospitalization, death of a family member, victimization of a crime. In every country, the US has contingencies for possible crisis (hurricanes, nuclear disaster, flooding, rioting, civil unrest) and undertake exercises every year or two to update them, involving the US military and the US country.
