Rescue Challenge Events

A long-standing product of the UKRO is the ‘Rescue Challenge’ which provides for a safe and controlled environment in which rescue and trauma professionals can trial innovative techniques and procedures and test new equipment that could ultimately be used at real incidents; this is known as the Rescue Challenge Concept (RCC).

The rescue challenges are open to all rescue and trauma professionals, irrespective of background, governance, etc. the priority is providing a platform to allow for information exchange, peer learning and effective feedback.
