Hostile Environment Awareness Training and Services

Updated: Sep 26, 2019

Hostile Environment Training Services for Journalists, NGO's & Travelers

Over the years we have interacted with many journalists and NGO personnel who routinely work in hazardous and hostile environments. We have many years of international travel, operational experience and are aware of the problems that can occur; not only the issues of terrorism but the threats from medical emergencies, petty crime, false arrest and natural disasters etc.

Due to our experience we are able to understand the problems that can occur and formulate contingencies to avoid or deal with the potential problems. We have a network of contacts and instructors who have operated throughout Latin America, Europe, Africa and MENA including Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia and Nigeria.

Our hostile environment services include:

  • Security & travel assessment services

  • Contingency planning services

  • Security advisors

  • Trouble shooting services

  • Facilitating assignments and stories
