HEAT - Hazardous Environment Awareness Training
The HEAT course is designed for participants with a wide range of backgrounds and occupations, and with hostile environment experience ranging from none to signiﬁcant. Participants will be trained to recognize and mitigate potential threats and respond appropriately to various safety and security incidents. During the HEAT course you will learn techniques on how to "take control of chaos" through classroom sessions and practical exercises. The training courses are based on our experiences and knowledge of managing an international humanitarian organization with over 8,000 employees working around the world.
Pre-screening of training needs, close mentoring and follow-up with every participant ensures that he/she is able to understand and react appropriately to risks and security threats.
Safety and security trainings of the Danish Refugee Council focus on how to stay and operate, rather than on how and when to leave. Proactive and non-aggressive measures form the basis of the Danish Refugee Council’s approach to safety and security, and thus the HEAT training.
