Registration Information


Registration Information

UKRO appreciates that the timescales for entries for the Challenge this year is tight and is grateful to the Services that have already managed to get their teams registered.  We understand that some Services may be having difficulty with this. Therefore, as long as teams reserve places by emailing Guy Goodman (ggoodman@ukro.org) by the closing date we will honour those entries as long as the paperwork follows as quickly as possible in August.

National shortage of oxygen cylinders


Competitors to bring oxygen cylinders and masks due to national shortage.

Please could all teams in all disciplines bring their own oxygen cylinders and masks to be used in the scenarios, this is due to the current situation of low supplies nationally.

These can be dummy/training or empty cylinders, but masks must be new before each scenario.

Also could all competing personnel in all disciplines bring individual RPE. This ideally should be what is used in your own service, this is to negate the need for face fitting tests which would incur delays in teams competing.

Any questions please email ADixon@ukro.org
