50 journalists learned how to survive in combat conditions
This weekend, 50 Ukrainian and international journalists underwent a three-day HEFAT security training from the 24.02 Foundation with the support of the international charity Saint Javelin. They received super-stocked tactical first-aid kits from Free Press Unlimited.
Three days of intensive training is almost 10 hours of meaningful lectures on information security on digital media and risk assessment before going on a mission to a hostile environment.
More than 16 hours of training on first aid, evacuation of the wounded, mine safety, and working out real scenarios in practice.
We at the 24.02 Foundation are doing and will continue to do everything for the safety of Ukrainian media workers who became military journalists in one day.
During this time, the journalists learned to provide first aid to themselves and their colleagues, stop bleeding with tamponade, apply tourniquets in any situation, examine the wounded according to the MARCH protocol, and emergency evacuates him in twelve different ways.
Also, media workers are now aware of the main types of mines, their principles of action, and common types of fortifications and know how to use them.
These knowledge and skills can save a journalist's life and those around him. This is information that every media person working in a hostile environment or on the front lines should possess and constantly update. Telling and showing the truth about the terrible crimes of Russia in Ukraine is extremely important, but the life of a journalist is priceless!
