Safety Books:
Reporter World provides a variety of safety equipment, identification products, specialized high-visibility clothing, pertinent news, product reviews, book reviews and useful links specifically for reporters, writers, assignment editors, news correspondents, journalists, ENG crews, photographers, production staff, directors, segment producers, media security personnel, and freelancers: in short, anyone who is part of the news gathering, information reporting, or documentary film industries.

This area of the Books section is devoted to keeping you and your news crews safe and sound, whether you cover local politics in your home town or violent clashes in one of the world's hot spots. These safety books run the gamut of staying out of trouble spots (sometimes difficult given the fact that many reporters by their very job descriptions must travel to dangerous areas), to avoiding street violence, and what to do if you or your crew members are injured in the field and need help.

Since there is more risk to your personal safety when traveling, we recommend checking out both this page and our selection of Travel books containing other items of interest to correspondents, ENG crews and other traveling news gatherers.
