The hybrid lessons of real-life scenarios, and the data written in black and white before them, are no longer separate alien beings. My description of fitting a tourniquet to my own leg in Syria in 2012 is no longer a series of unconnected words. It’s now a graphic life or death scenario imprinted on the minds of the course attendees.
As part of its campaign for the safety of freelance journalists and local field producers in Ukraine, the Frontline Club and Frontline Freelance Register are running a series of HEFAT course in Lviv, Ukraine.
The course is designed to be country specific and is aimed at people who will traveling to, and working in, Ukraine’s hot spots. The course will be in two sections. The first, security and hostile environment training, will be classroom based in Lviv centre and will cover all aspects of working in a hostile environment.
