Safer News Gathering
Reporters and technicians in all media types face dangers every day from natural and man-made disasters, unsafe work areas, and criminal activities. The people in the field need to be ready not just to respond to breaking news, but to get the story safely.
All Hazards has a customizable program called Safer News Gathering that can help your team protect themselves on every assignment.
Your team can learn Safer News Gathering at your station or news room. The training agenda can be customized to fit the needs of your market and most common story types. All Hazards can also present a tried-and-true comprehensive training program, applicable to the most common circumstances, dangers, and concerns found in everyday reporting.
Workshop durations vary with your specific needs. Even so, Safer News Gathering is usually presented in 2 to 4 hours.
And, Safer News Gathering can be an Open Enrollment training session, one that you host for all local media partners or outlets. All Hazards can also make arrangements for an ‘off-campus’ workshop in your city or at our Findlay, Ohio, training campus.
