WAR CORRESPONDENTS, JOURNALISTS AND TV CREWS BELONG TO THAT “ILL-DEFINED” CATEGORY OF PERSONS WHO FOLLOW ARMED FORCES WITHOUT ACTUALLY BEING MEMBERS THEREOF. IN ADDITION, BECAUSE THEY ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THE WAR EFFORT MIGHT EXPERIENCE A PRISONER-OF-WAR STATUS, IF THEY FALL INTO ENEMY HANDS,OR MIGHT ALSO ENCOUNTER A SERIES OF OTHER LIFE THREATENING SITUATIONS
In 2003 more journalists were killed worldwide than at any time since 1995. The conflict in Iraq was in large part responsible for that toll. The proportion of casualties was higher among journalists than among the ranks of the coalition armed forces. Added to the traditional dangers of war, there are unpredictable criminal and environmental hazards for the film crews and journalists while they are engaged in professional missions.
Apart from the example of war zones, the safety of News Media and their equipment has been compromised in several occasions while they were performing their assigned tasks in civilized countries, because they simply underestimated the civil unrest or regional risk indicators. This is the point we come into the equation, since we are experienced in dealing with the demanding schedules of a TV/Film crew and we are capable of establishing a “safety net ” around you armed or unarmed, depending on the situation. From packing up your gear, through all stages of your operation, till you return back home safe and happy, our security operatives act as guardian angels by your side.
