UKRO 2015 Rope Rescue Challenge

05 August, 2015

The Fire Service College at Moreton-in-Marsh recently hosted the United Kingdom Rescue Organisation (UKRO) Challenge 2015 that took place over two days. In the rope rescue element teams were set seven scenarios to complete against the clock.

As well as being a competition, the emphasis is to develop and promote good practice. Each team is assessed and scored on incident command and control, physical rescue and general techniques, and pre-hospital care (medical). London Brigade emerged as worthy winners.
