PROMOTING THE SAFETY OF FREELANCE JOURNALISTS IN COMBAT ZONES.

RISC is training and equipping freelance journalists in all media to treat life-threatening injuries on the battlefield.

Freelancers comprise the vast majority of those who cover wars, and consequently make up the vast majority of deaths and injuries.

Surviving a gunshot or shrapnel wound is often a matter of doing the right thing in the first few minutes, and our training focuses on that brief, critical period of time. It is our hope to make first aid training the industry norm – like having a flak jacket or sat phone – and to prevent unnecessary deaths in a job that is so vital to human dignity and human rights.
