The environments in which humanitarian and development organizations work are continually changing with an additional growing demand for specific safety and security skill building.
Experts and trainers of HDFF’s Human Development Training Center (HDTC) are aware of these differing demands, as some security and program management are looking to improve certain problem areas, while others want the opportunity to refresh their knowledge. In order to meet this need, HDFF has designed a “SST-Week” consisting of four separate “one-day-events” on key safety and security issues relevant to NGO personnel.
HDFF is encouraging you to pick and choose your own schedule based on your individual interests and needs.
Who should attend?
• Safety and Security related NGO personnel
• General NGO personnel
• NGO HR and administrative personnel

Wednesday 16 May 2012 – Evacuation Planning and Fire Fighting
Worldwide security incidents related to political unrest are often closely connected to fire, resulting in injuries and/or loss of life for NGO personnel. In case of political turmoil or safety incidents like big fires, do you know how to evacuate your staff? Have you ever drafted an evacuation plan? For small fires, do you know how to use a fire extinguisher? This exercise is designed to teach evacuation planning and a practical hands-on fire extinguisher drill.

All sessions will be facilitated by a combination of HDFF trainers, as well as key professionals in the security and humanitarian sector. Participants are welcome to attend as many sessions as they like, reflecting their own individual or organizational needs.
